Dear materials, more resources for compensation and new regional price lists by July 31st

04/05/2022 – New injection of resources and faster adjustment mechanisms to cope with the increase in the prices of building materials and avoid the blockade of construction sites. These are some of the innovations contained in the draft of the “Aid” decreewhich received the go-ahead from the Council of Ministers on Monday evening.

Dear materials: 11 billion until 2026

To avoid blocking the construction sites of the works already started and stimulate the realization of new works, the draft allocates about 11 billion euros until 2026.

For the works financed by the PNRR and the PNC and the works for which an extraordinary commissioner has been appointed, the “Aid” Decree allocates 700 million euros for 2022 and 500 million for 2023.

For the other works, the draft of the decree provides for 770 million euros for 2022 and 550 million for 2023.

Also the endowment of the Price Adjustment Fund is increased by 500 million euros for 2022 and 550 million for 2023.

To these resources are added others, destined for works financed by the PNRR, the PNC or for which an extraordinary commissioner has been appointed, to be contracted out after the entry into force of the “Aid” Decree. For these works, the establishment of a new Fund is planned with an endowment of 1.5 billion euros for each of the years from 2022 to 2026.

Dear materials, the mechanism for updating prices

The draft of the decree seeks to speed up the mechanism for adjusting prices. Having prices that correspond to the market situation makes it possible to prevent tenders from being deserted or companies to find themselves in difficulty during the execution of the works.

The Regions, notwithstanding the rules that provide for the annual updating of the price lists, by 31 July 2022, and limited to the year 2022, will extraordinary update of the price lists in force. These price lists will cease to be valid on 31 December 2022 and can be used, on a transitional basis, for tender-based projects approved by 31 March 2023.

While waiting for these price lists to be approved, the Contracting Stations will determine the cost of the products, equipment and processing increasing 20% the results of the regional price lists. In the event that the increase of certain products is less than 20%, the Contracting Authorities will recover the amounts recognized automatically.

The new rules will apply to works contracts, including those awarded to a general contractor, awarded on the basis of offers submitted by 31 December 2021.

Dear materials, 90% compensations

Until now, companies affected by a price increase of more than 5% compared to those recorded in the year of submission of the offer could obtain compensation equal to 80% of the surplus.

The draft of the “Aid” decree raises this percentage to 90% and establishes that the payment certificate is issued within 5 days from the adoption of the state of progress.

For works carried out starting from 1 January 2022, for which the payment certificate has already been issued, the draft of the “Aid” Decree provides for a extraordinary payment certificateto be issued within 30 days.
