The “Governance & Capacità Istituzionale” NOP

The National Operational Programme on Governance and Institutional Capacity (#pongov) is among the 2014-2020 cohesion policy instruments financed by the European Union through the European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds.

Managed by the Territorial Cohesion Agency with delegated powers to the Department of Public Administration and the Ministry of Justice, the so-called #pongov supports the implementation of strategic priorities on public administrations enhancement and innovation agreed upon between Italy and the European Commission and laid down in the 2014-2020 Partnership Agreement.

The actions financed focus on skills, organisational and service delivery methods, methods and procedures, technological tools and solutions, and forms of institutional cooperation, with the aim of promoting more efficient and effective public administrations that are closer to territories, citizens and enterprises.

In order to mitigate the health, economic and social effects of the COVID-19 epidemic, the #pongov also finances actions aimed at strengthening national health services by increasing human resources and equipment.

The #pongov budget amounts to more than 805 million euros, integrated with an additional 1,285 million euros (1,243 from EU + 42 from the Complementary OP) linked to REACT EU, to contribute to overcoming the negative effects of the pandemic while maintaining its strategic aims focused on strengthening administrative and institutional capacity.

Through REACT EU resources, the #pongov operates for organisational strengthening of public health structures, improvement of Italian population’s capacity to respond to the pandemic, and administrative capacity building for central and regional public administrations, also in view of the transition to the 2021-2027 programming cycle.
