Only full members can provide the Secretariat for INQAAHE. The Secretariat is appointed for a term of two and a half years.

At least six months before the end of the first term of the Secretariat the Board decides whether the Secretariat —if interested— may continue for a second term of two and a half years. In this case the existing contract is prolonged for another term of two and a half years without re-tender. If the first term contract is not automatically prolonged, and in any case after a second term, an open call is published for candidates to host the INQAAHE Secretariat.

Current Secretariat is hosted by the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency, AQU Catalunya.
