Evidence of effectiveness
Due to the instrument's characteristics and objectives (a support-decision system), its effectiveness and impact are not assessed. With reference to the most relevant instrument's progress indicators, the main figures are as follows: about 800 so-called "professional units" are described in the system using more than 300 variables; and for all the Italian Regions/Autonomous Provinces and all the economic sectors (as classified by Istat), updated occupational forecasts are available. The benefits and beneficiaries largely correspond to those expected. No relevant unexpected benefits or costs derived so far from the instrument's implementation.
Engagement of stakeholders
The monitoring, mapping and forecasting of professions/jobs contents, skills and changes at national level is one of the institutional tasks of INAPP, a task the institute has to perform by law, which is funded every year. As for the other stakeholders, the inputs they give to the System come from activities (surveys, data-bases and administrative archives production and management, researches) they have to perform in accordance with their institutional missions.
