The gradual loss of public resources has made it essential to adopt a more careful and austere approach throughout the world. This is especially true of Italy, in light of its extremely high public debt. However, the problem is that austerity alone cannot suffice, not even in times of crisis. We need newer methods than the traditional ones, which compel improving administrations to make the same sacrifices as those less stable. The result is that these sacrifices are perceived as unfair, thus damaging public and administrative opinion towards the government. Austerity therefore must be accompanied by incentives that award meritorious administrations and sanction those who are not. In order to do so, there must be a method to assess and gauge quality.

The Public Rating model aims at evaluating and measuring Transparency, Integrity, and Performance of Public Administrations – local and national – through the application of ESG criteria.

The evaluation model regarding has many new innovative features:

  • There is no need for the PA to collaborate in the evaluation process
  • It implements the latest regulations regarding PAs (particularly Legislative decree no.33/2013 and Laws against corruption),
  • It considers both qualitative and quantitative data regarding performance,
  • It helps prevent the default risk,
  • It helps prevent corruption,
  • It establishes a benchmark.

Public rating is a tool to

  • Reform a PA

PA can be changed thanks to the external performance evaluation of each Administration, considering both qualitative and quantitative data. The result is then compared with the ones of other Administrations, showing the achievements reached and promoting a positive competition.

  • Support the PA

There are many Administrations which have difficulties in complying with regulations regarding Transparency, Efficiency, and Anti-corruption; the Public Rating system offers support in these sectors.

  • Spending Review

The aim of the Public Rating is not to give marks, but to establish a reference benchmark in order to help the Government understand the best way to allocate public money through an incentive system: Administrations which work better deserve more money.

  • Anti-corruption

The Rating system is an important instrument in the evaluation of the Transparency level of PAs, which has a key role in the fight against corruption.

  • Civic Engagement

The evaluation of the Municipality also considers information sent by citizens and companies, gradually creating something similar to a “TripAdvisor” of PAs.

Acknowledgements

The value of the Public Rating evaluation model for Public Administrations has been recognised by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, and by Confindustria, whose President has described the Public Rating as “one of the crucial points to our conception of a Public Administration” and that therefore “deserves support”.

Recently, fruitful contacts have been established with the World Bank, in particular with the supervisor of Public Sector Governance and Anti-corruption.
