Spain has three tiers of government: national, regional, and local and has a civil law legal system. Regional governments (which in this context include the 17 autonomous regions) are the predominant deliverers and owners of Spanish infrastructure. Inter-regional infrastructure is the responsibility of the National Government. Construction contracts in Spain are mainly governed by the Spanish Civil Code which sets out the basics for the provision of construction services.

These institutions can maximise the quantity and quality of infrastructure projects and crowd in private investment, providing value for end users. National Infrastructure Banks provide the financing, expertise, and long-term planning for both public and private stakeholders to develop infrastructure in line with the needs of the community.
