The objective of this study is to monitor the specific case of the Valencian Region in the implementation of the European funds, both those assigned to the autonomous communities and those of which the local city councils are responsible for, providing a comparative view with other Spanish regions and with the General State Administration.
The information analyzed includes tenders for contracts and subsidies. In both cases, the Government of Spain provides information on its website on the distribution of funds (with the lists of tenders for contracts and subsidies), which is the reference information for monitoring the degree of implementation. In the case of tenders, information is provided by the Public Sector Procurement Platform. In the case of subsidies, the Government of Spain offers a database with information on all the calls for proposals financed by the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, which allows monitoring, focusing attention on those called in the Valencian Community. Detailed information on each subsidy can be obtained from the National System of Information on Subsidies and Public Aids. For the specific case of the Comunitat Valenciana, it is possible to analyze other issues of interest, such as the degree of implementation, differentiating by ministries, companies and other public bodies dependent on the regional administration and local councils.
