Cohesion policy monitoring

The National Monitoring System, managed by General Inspectorate for Relations with the European Union of Italy’s National Accounting Office of the Ministry of the Economy and Finance (MEF-RGS-IGRUE), is the source of data on projects being implemented as published on OpenCoesione. At the core of the National Monitoring System is the unified database fed, at the individual project level, by the local information systems of all the public bodies responsible for plans or programmes financed by cohesion funding based on common rules and standards.

The requirement for a provision of centralized informational tool comes from European union regulations advanced already in the 2000-2006 programming period. From the 2007-2013 period, the observation field was extended to all projects of cohesion policy implemented with the support of national funding (first and foremost the Development and Cohesion Fund, or DCF, formerly the Fund for Underutilised Areas). From one programming period to the next, the system, despite being organized into separate databases, maintained a unified information structure and has progressed in line with the main variables observed.

OpenCoesione provides access to open data across the various periods, starting with 2007-2013.

On OpenCoesione the data are navigable and available in open data across the various periods, starting from the 2000-2006 period limited to FSC programmes and from the 2007-2013 period as regards all national and European programmes. The uniformity of the information that flows into the Single Database is guaranteed by the Single Protocol and the related Context Tables that the Administrations must adopt for all their systems in order to interface with the National Monitoring System. Details and application rules are collected in constantly updated documents such as Vademecum, glossaries and application notes, the main references of which are given below.
