Rome - "SPLIT PAYMENT REVOLUTION – The Impact on Enterprises and the Public Administration and on Public-Private Relations,”

The event, promoted by BFF and I-Com, Istituto per la Competitività, and sponsored by Assifact, is part of the Public Administration Conference project, which promoters set up last year to examine the industrial, financial, and tax implications of relationships between private enterprises and the Public Administration in Italy.

Representatives from institutions and the association world participated in the conference. It was followed by a debate focused on new rules on split payment in effect as of July 1, 2017, which resulted in a difficult compromise between the liquidity needs of enterprises and public finance needs.
Participants in the debate included representatives of Assonime, ANCE, ASSIFACT, Confindustria, Confprofessioni, and R.E TE. Imprese Italia.

Rome – NEW PUBLIC PROCUREMENT CODE, A CLEAR AND PRECISE MECHANISM FOR GROWTH? THE EFFECTS OF REFORM ON THE PAYMENTS LIFE CYCLE

The new Public Procurement Code (Legislative Decree 50/2016) introduces processes designed to simplify public procurement procedures. The legislation intends to encourage the transition to a more competitive economy, capable of qualifying and rationalizing purchases by the Public Administration.

The goal of the meeting is to encourage a discussion between the interested parties, both public and private, particularly in order to asses the impact on timely payments to contracting companies, and thus the indirect impact on sub-suppliers.

The Convention is organized jointly with I-COM, in collaboration with Coface and Studio Legale Orrick and with the sponsorship of ACMI, Associazione Credit Manager Italia, and Assifact, Associazione Italiana Factoring, and is one of the various initiatives that BFF has organized regarding Public Administration procurement issues.
