Dear-prices, Inarcassa Foundation: ‘the Government penalizes professionals’

17/06/2022 – The measures aimed at coping with the exceptional increases in the prices of building materials, decided by the Government with the Aid Decree to avoid the blockade of construction sites financed with the PNRR, did not take into account the professionals of the sector.

Franco Fietta, President of the Inarcassa Foundation denounces this, stating that “the greatest burden falls on our professionals who, as project managers, are obliged to redo the accounting even in cases where the progress of the works has already been adopted, among other things having to use absolutely new calculation criteria, regulatory interpretations still confused and often in the absence of updated price lists “.

See the duties and responsibilities for professionals increase – continues Fietta -, the same cannot be said for the economic part. The directors of the works, in fact, denounce one strong resistance on the part of the ORs to revise fees for this new commitment “.

“Some political forces, however – he adds -, have already grasped the criticality underlying art. 26 of the Aid Decree (DL 50/2022 being converted), appropriately recalling Article 106 of the Procurement Code (Legislative Decree 50/2016).

In fact, an amendment presented asks to recognize the construction manager, pursuant to article 106 of the Code, a flat rate increase of 30% of the item “Qcl.09” or “QcL.10” relating to the accounting of the works, referred to in the Ministerial Decree of 17 June 2016 Parameters.

Article 26 contains the urgent rules to deal with exceptional increases of the prices of construction materials, while Article 106 of the Procurement Code is the one that governs the modification of contracts during the period of effectiveness.

“The Aid Decree, unfortunately, has an even more serious problem – continues the President of the Inarcassa Foundation – in that it has not yet resolved the slowdown in credit institutions which have stopped purchasing loans a few months ago related to tax concessions for the renovation of houses and buildings “.

“The previous rules introduced by the legislator have the market for tax credits blocked and our professionals no longer have the liquidity to carry out their studies, pay staff or suppliers. They only have pieces of paper that no one accepts anymore and this not because of market laws, but because of the entropy of the rules “.

“The Inarcassa Foundation – concludes the President – with difficulty it is working with various credit institutions to find new ways, but unfortunately we are not talking about small figures, they are 5 billion euros suspended that are bringing the entire sector to its knees. We hope that during the examination for the conversion of the Aid Decree into law it will be possible to correct the law ”.
