The President of the Council of Ministers, or alternatively, the Minister for Southern Italy and Territorial Cohesion, may act on behalf of the Public Administration in charge of interventions (also through an ad-hoc extraordinary commissioner), in cases of failed implementation of programmes and projects co-financed with European Structural Funds and underutilisation of the related funding (Decree-Law No. 69/2013 – Article 9(2)).

Pursuant to Decree No. 133/2014, the President of the Council of Ministers may, following consultation with the Unified Conference, submit to CIPE (Italy’s Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning) the definition and reprogramming of uncommitted resources if the relevant Public Administrations failed to implement plans, programmes and interventions co-financed by the European Union or by the national fund.

Furthermore, the President of the Council of Ministers exercises powers of inspection and monitoring to ascertain compliance with the set time schedules and objectives of the plans, programmes and interventions financed.
