La Centrale Finanziaria Generale SpA attaches particular importance to the Special Projects, which are particularly complex both for their nature and their impact at local level and on central and local institutions at national and international levels.
These projects regard public works, the transport system, infrastructure, the privatization of utilities or public companies, important international transactions.
The Special Projects are followed by a team capable of ensuring their implementation and taking care of the economic, contractual, managerial and organizational aspects, as well as the relations with relevant institutions.
Infrastructure and Public Works
The government’s aim is to carry out 100 billions worth of infrastructural works involving public, private and E.U. funds (accounting for 5-6% of the GDP) by the end of the legislature. Approximately 27.7 billions regard projects adopted by the Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning (Cipe), works confirmed and the Plan for the South of Italy; 24.5 billions regard works unblocked at procedural level, which can be started between 2012 and 2013, whereas 50.9 billions concern works identified and being further examined to be started between 2014 and 2015.
The strategic Corridors are the most important infrastructural investment since they are ten large road and railway axes (Trans-European Networks) already adopted by the E.U. Council of Transport Ministers. Four of these ten strategic Corridors regard Italy directly (Baltic – Adriatic; Mediterranean; Helsinki - La Valletta; Genoa – Rotterdam).
The government aims at implementing the principle of market competition, which basically means to entrust to the market all the activities which can be liberalized. The three axes around which the regulation of public services will be hinged are the following: tender to select the Manager, tender to select the private shareholder of the joint venture with public shareholding not lower than 40% and finally in-house calls for proposals, without tender, for companies fully controlled by local authorities, but only confined to local public services having an economic value lower than 900,000 euros per year.
