The Lormes and Murat Tele or Smart Work Centres are both public sector driven initiatives, initiated by the association of town/village councils of the District of Nivernais Morvan (where Lormes is situated) and by the association of town/village councils of the District of Murat.

These associations (or communities) of local councils are established to enable the provision of collective services and actions where the individual local council (in France often a village or small town) is not able or equipped to do so or where simply it is more efficient over a wider geographical area. Each local authority association will appoint a local councillor, supported by staff to oversee and manage ICT/Digital development (often as part of wider economic development)

The Centres are 100% publicly owned and recent new developments of the Centres have been 100% publicly funded (including ERDF money). There was no private sector input into the original development of these centres.
