Among the investments in the budget, Mayor Alemanno also announced the inclusion of the “nomad plan” item. “8 million euros have been included for the restructuring of nomad camps and the removal of illegal ones, explained the mayor. “The goal is to have nomad camps with another level of security and solidarity.”
Another important innovation introduced with the settlement plan is that the Municipality will equip itself with a centralized purchasing system. Thanks to an online portal, all departments will be able to view a catalog of goods and services on the basis of which to process requests, details on accredited suppliers and orders placed by the various offices. The Capitoline managers, thanks to the use of the digital signature, will be able to forward the request for new orders also on the basis of requests already made by other departments and offices, thus activating economies of scale with estimated savings for the Capitoline administration around 10% for the first year and up to 20% in 2011.
