The Director General


The Director General is the legal representative of the Territorial Cohesion Agency, in charge of managing and implementing the objectives set out in the guidance and planning documents issued by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (or by the political authority, whereby delegated). In particular, the Director General takes care of relations and liaising with national, European and international institutions and public administrations, as well as regional authorities and local autonomies, in harmony with the purposes and guidelines set out in Articles 1 and 2 of the Agency’s Statute. By 31 January each year, following consultation with the Agency’s Steering Committee, the Director General submits to the President of the Council of Ministers a three-year plan updated on an annual basis, laying down the objectives, expected results, scope, and terms/conditions of the funds to be entrusted to the Agency. The three-year plan furthermore sets out service enhancement strategies, management result analysis devices, and procedures for notifying the President of the Council of Ministers (or the political authority, whereby delegated) of Agency’s internal management issues (organisation, processes, use of resources). Defined via an ad-hoc covenant between the President of the Council of Ministers (or the political authority, whereby delegated) and the Director General of the Agency, the plan is notified on the occasion of the “Permanent Conference for relationship between the State, the Regions, and the Autonomous Provinces of Trento and Bolzano”. The Director General is also in charge of all the Agency’s tasks that are not expressly entrusted to other bodies by law provisions and by the Agency’s Statute. In detail, the Director General:

  • Chairs the Steering Committee
  • Adopts plans and programmes required to attain the objectives set in the covenant, following consultation with the Steering Committee
  • Adopts and submits for approval to the President of the Council of Ministers (or the political authority, whereby delegated) the regulations and general provisions that govern the Agency’s operational activity, after consulting the Steering Committee
  • Submits to the President of the Council of Ministers (or the political authority, whereby delegated) a six-monthly report on the activities performed by the Agency and, in particular, on the three-year plan implementation progress
  • Sets up the economic budgets and balance sheets of the Agency, after consulting the Steering Committee, and transmits them to the President of the Council of Ministers (or the political authority, whereby delegated) for approval, following consultation with the Ministry of Economy and Finance
  • Compliantly with current legislation and collective agreements, appoints senior officials and assigns their respective roles, responsibilities, and remit offices
  • Puts in place management documents, and exercises spending and revenue acquisition powers, without prejudice to senior officials’ remit.
