The Index of Public Administrations (IPA) is a public database of information provided by Public Administrations and by Public Service Managers and aimed at disclosing:

  • the certified email address of the Public Service Managers and Homogeneous Organizational Areas (protocol offices) of Public Administrations, to facilitate the exchange of electronic documents through official channels;
  • the unique code that identifies the offices of the Public Administrations needed to send electronic invoices.

The IPA therefore represents a census of Public Administrations and Public Service Managers, accessible to anyone, containing in addition to the aforementioned data (mandatory by law) also summary information on the entity (address, tax code, legal representative, website, social channels, classification …), on its organizational structure (organization chart, offices, managers, addresses, telephone, email …) and on the services provided (description, delivery web channel, contact email …).

IPA information is used for example as a reference by the Ministry of Economy and Finance for the identification of the Public Administrations required to apply the split payment mechanism referred to in article 17-ter of the d.P.R. 26 October 1972, n. 633 (Split-payment) and to feed the database of Public Administrations (BDAP) for the monitoring of public finance trends.
