introduction
Introduction

The aim of this presentation is to outline the Italian experience with the IT system provided for the implementation of the Operational Programmes co-financed by the 2007-2013 Structural Funds.

Within the 2007-2013 Italian National Strategic Reference Framework and the specific responsibilities the IT system supports financial management, certification of expenditure and auditing.

Such topics will be introduced in the following slides.

The ultimate objective is to ensure an effective functioning of management and control systems of the 2007-2013 Operational Programmes. Such management and control systems are aimed at guaranteeing a positive impact of expenditure and common resources by preventing and correcting irregularities.

experience in 2000 2006
Experience in 2000-2006
  • In the previous programming period the IT system related to Operational Programmes has been improved, especially in the matter of financial management and monitoring of the operations progress.
  • However, some critical aspects were detected:
  • Incomplete automation of some processes (relations amongst the Managing Authority, the Paying Authority and the EU Commission)
  • High degree of exchange of documentation on paper support
  • Lack of standard procedures and related difficulties in comparing disharmonised data
  • Absence of a central activities-database control

2007-2013 Requirements

In the 2007-2013 programming period some relevant regulatory innovation led to the following consequences:

  • Digitalisation and electronic transmission of programming, financial management, monitoring and control data towards the SFC 2007 system
  • Capability of carrying out institutional fulfilments according to the timing set by national and common legislation
  • Permanent availability of auditing data, in order to have both- a glimpse of expenditure quality trends and

- a validation of audit strategy effectiveness

Programmes structure

The Italian National Strategic Reference Framework for 2007-2013 depicts

66 OperationalProgrammes

Spread throughout:

  • Regional Competitiveness and Employment Objective

it system reference elements
IT System referenceelements

The main elements underlying the IT System are related to:

  • Organisational and Management complexity
  • width and variety of processed data (financial, monitoring and control data)
  • pluralism of institutional bodies, at different levels, that own and exploit data
  • need to cope with several close institutional deadlines
  • Technological complexity
  • interaction, within the IGRUE IT System, among different responsibilities (financial, monitoring and control data)
  • System interaction with different external IT systems owned by local government Administrations
  • technological structure which the System is based on

IT System mainareas

The IT System developedby MEF – IGRUE iscomposedofthreemainareas:

  • FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT,it coordinates managing and certifying Authorities concerning all the operations (payment orders processing and sending, etc.)
  • MONITORING, it supports, at a single operation level, the surveying phase of planning and financial, physical and technical progress data
  • CONTROLS, it organises control procedures in all their diverse characteristics (first and second level controls, system audit, etc.)

key features of the it system
Key features of the IT System

The IT System which was developed in Italy is fully compatible with the 2007-2013 programmes and it is based on the following features:

  • Data input into locally developed IT systems, performed by each management, certification and audit Authority
  • Centralisation of information flow to be transmitted to the European Union within the Ministry of Economy and Finance IT System, by means of procedure protocols (protocolli di colloquio) with the help of locally developed IT systems.
  • Data and official documents transmission to the SFC 2007 System, through “web service” (funzioni di colloquio) developed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s (MEF – IGRUE) IT System
  • MEF – IGRUE IT System authentication by means of differentiated account profiles on a competence-wise basis

Ljubljana, 12-13 October 2009

conclusion
Conclusion

The IT System that supports 2007-2013 Programmes has been developed to address managing and control processes improvement requirements.

  • Operation automation and the availability of reliable data, which were surveyed and recorded in accordance with shared standards, improve Managing, Certifying and Audit authorities work quality.
  • The exploitation of the IT System allows:
    • coping easily with deadlines set by common legislation
    • the minimisation of potential errors connected with manual activities and paper flows
    • the immediate availability of information and either internal and external reports (EU, Court of Auditors, ISTAT, Italian Central Bank, etc.)
