Description

Short description Publishing new information on resource planning, funding opportunities, tenders and open competitions and strengthening the participation of civil society. General objective Make cohesion policies more effective through the dissemination of new information in an open data format or in terms of services provided to citizens and businesses across the country. Current situation OpenCoesione, started in 2012, is an open government initiative on cohesion policies aimed at bridging the socialeconomic differences between different areas of the country through the use of additional resources coming from the domestic and EU budget. This initiative has been supported so far by dedicated projects. The relevant data are publicly available here: http://www.opencoesione.gov.it/progetti/?=progetti&q=opencoesione. The implementation of the first portal www.opencoesione.gov.it was one of the actions contained in Italy’s first OGP plan. The portal currently ensures transparency on the implementation of projects funded by EU structural funds and national cohesion policies – as envisaged by the Unitary Monitoring System managed by the Ministry of Economics and Finance and supported by the Administrations leading the projects - and contains additional information on the financial and socio-economic context. Monitoring for the 2014-2020 programming period is about to begin. Therefore, open data on the implementation of projects available on the portal currently refer to the period 2007- 2013. Regarding programming and funding decisions, the current version of the portal offers a very restricted set of information: for the Operational Programmes, only the texts of the Programmes themselves and the related Implementation Reports, and for national resources, only the main general information on projects funded by the Cohesion and Development Fund approved by CIPE in the period 2011-2012. As regards collaboration and participation, for the first time in school year 2013-2014 the project “A Scuola di OpenCoesione” (ASOC) was launched, involving all Italian secondary schools. The analysis of projects funded by cohesion policies at local level leads to thematic research and civic monitoring of specific actions. The results of this work, at the end of the process, are shared in a public debate with local authorities without necessarily ensuring a continuity with the feedback circuit activated by the ASOC project and other initiatives that can be initiated as a result of civic monitoring. In school year 2015-2016, 120 schools took part in it. Expected results As regards transparency, completing information on cohesion policies, especially about the availability of: » Information on resource planning decisions and subsequent amendments, especially funding decisions deliberated by CIPE; » Structured information on funding opportunities, tenders and open competitions. As regards participation, integrating the territorial development project management system based on direct communication channels between civil society and administrations, with co-planning systems relying on a greater involvement and expansion of actors including schools and other players.
