With the three-year programming of the university system, the MIUR defines objectives that universities must pursue on aspects such as training, student services, staff, research and internationalization.

The indicators that determine these objectives are calculated using information organized inside the ministerial databases managed by Cineca.

The same type of support occurs for the definition of the ordinary financing fund (FFO), intended to cover the institutional and operating expenses of the academic system and research.

Furthermore, the consortium has developed new tools that allow for harmonizing the accounting processes of individual universities and for sharing university budgets, making them accessible to the public.
