PNRR Decree 4 – Advances on the new face of the Plan

Public Contracts: few changes for projects coming out of the PNRR To the awarding procedures already published on the date of entry into force of the decree, to the procedures without a call for tenders for which invitations to submit bids have already been sent, as well as to the infrastructure works referred to in Annex IV of DL772021 continue to apply: The rules on simplification of contracting referred to in DL772021 and DL 13/2023The provisions on strengthening and supporting administrative capacity, staff recruitment and assignmentThe provisions on the use of the Regis system for reporting procedures, which may be simplified on a case-by-case basis by the titular administrations for fully defunded interventionsThe rules on allocations for material price increases from the “Fund for the start-up of non-deferrable works.”

The Plan, which will come into effect after two implementing decrees of the MIMIT, is financed under the RepowerEU from the new Mission 7 of the NRP. The facility covers the dual transition of production processes (digital and energy) against investments made in the two-year period 2024-2025, capped at 50 million. Beneficiaries are all companies resident or with permanent establishments in Italy if they make new investments in innovation projects that result in a reduction in energy consumption.  Tax credits must be offset by Dec. 31, 2025, and only the excess can be used in subsequent years and in any case with extended timeframes. Investments in new tangible and intangible assets that contribute to the reduction of energy consumption are facilitated.  RepowerEU: new Transition 5.0 Plan.   

Whoever makes a mistake pays: fund cut-off clause Obligation to populate the Regis system within 30 days If the European Commission asks for part of the PNRR funds back for failure to meet the PNRR deadlines, the administration holding the intervention will activate the corresponding recovery actions against the implementing entities also by offsetting with other resources due to them from other national funding sources. In addition, the government will be able to replace mission units that are too slow in implementing projects; for this, the PNRR structure at the PCM is strengthened, which will also be able to carry out inspections and into which 18 components of the Department for Cohesion and the South will converge. In order to ensure the achievement, also prospectively, of the intermediate and final goals and objectives of the measures and related interventions provided for in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRP), implementing entities will have to ensure that the procedural and financial timetable of each program and intervention updated as of December 31, 2023, indicating the state of progress as of that date, is updated on the “ReGiS” computer system within 30 days of the date of entry into force of the decree.

Governments must report the amount of unpaid trade debts on a quarterly basis. Working groups are established to monitor the implementation of measures to reduce payment times. Ministries and EELLs with payment delays must analyze the causes and prepare a plan within 30 days of the decree’s effective date. Initial advances payable to implementing entities increase to 30 percent of the allocated grant, unless otherwise provided by law.    Reduction of payment time by public administrations from 45 to 30 days. Advances of 30 percent to implementing entities.

Administrative Capacity Building: additional resources to ministries and EELLs A coordination cabin shall be established at each prefecture for the definition of the action plan for the effective implementation of the programs and interventions provided by the NRP in the provincial sphere. The coordinating cabin is attended by the president of the province, a representative of the region or autonomous province, a representative of the State General Accounting Office, a representation of mayors of municipalities holding PNRR interventions, and representatives of the central administrations holding the programs.Derogations and regulatory changes are introduced to simplify administrative processes. This includes the extension of deadlines for the stabilization of temporary staff and simplifications in selection and recruitment procedures. The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty, and Forestry, along with the Ministry of Health will receive additional resources to strengthen expertise and resources.

Appointment of an Extraordinary Commissioner: An Extraordinary Commissioner is established to ensure the achievement of the objectives set for the implementation of new beds for university students by June 30, 2026.Term of office: The Commissioner will remain in office until December 31, 2026, and may make use of a support structure composed of up to five staff members, including a non-general manager and four non-managerial employees, with defined economic treatment and working arrangements.

Digital Wallet In order to enhance and strengthen interoperability among public databases through the National Digital Data Platform (PDND) and to promote the dissemination and use of networked services provided by public and private entities, the Italian Digital Wallet System (IT-Wallet System) is established. When fully operational through the IO App or other digital solutions, it will be possible to upload key citizen documents, such as a driver’s license, health card, etc. The system will start in early 2025.

A city accessible to large urban areas

The city of Grosseto lies on the Rome-Livorno road axis and is connected to the large urban areas of Siena and Florence via the E78.


With regard to the Rome-Livorno axis (the so-called Tirrenica), the Italian government has announced that in 2025 work will begin on upgrading and securing one of the territory’s main road axes, with plans to upgrade, among other things, the Grosseto south-San Pietro in Palazzi section and the central section from Ansedonia to Grosseto.


As for the Siena-Grosseto link, work is under way to upgrade the E78 to four lanes .

The work specifically concerns a section of about 11.8 kilometers and affects the municipalities of Sovicille, Murlo and Monticiano.


The work, for a total investment of 195 million euros, consists of upgrading the SS223 “di Paganico” to four lanes by building a new carriageway alongside the existing one.


Grosseto also has a civil airport (Grosseto Airport-Seam Spa), which currently serves private flights, with a very strong charter traffic of about 1,500 charter flights a year for business and tourist visits.
