Among the listed companies, Spanish post, Renfe or radio and television companies are the first to appear. If you look at the ranking of the number of employees of these state-owned enterprises, you will find that group tragsa, a government magnate that few people have heard of, ranks second in the list, but it exists all over the territory. More importantly, in emergency situations, such as the coronavirus crisis in 2020, its turnover increased by 16%, exceeded $1 billion for the first time, and its profit before tax tripled to $27 million.
In fy2019, according to the latest consolidated data of all listed companies, the average number of employees of tragsa group is 13738, slightly higher than Renfe (13723 employees) and the leading post office (54475 employees). Last year, according to the information provided by the association, the staff of the association increased to 15385: 6312 were fixed and 9073 were temporary. This increase is due to the increase in coronavirus related properties. “The company received nearly 7000 orders from different government departments, 2000 more than in previous years. This growth has led to greater recruitment and an increase in the number of employees, explains Jesus Casas, President of the tragsa group.
But what is the tragedy group? It is a 100% state-owned enterprise affiliated to the state, autonomous region, delegation, island Council and Parliament. 51% of the capital comes from state-owned industrial holding company (SEPI), which relies on SEPI organically. Its main work is environmental issues (which are very large in rural areas) and emergencies. Casas added: “according to the data for 2019, 73% of our employees live in so-called empty Spain, which enables us to reach the whole region quickly and flexibly.”. The team can also operate when a bid fails or the company abandons a task assigned by the public administration.
The existence of such a company, known as the government’s own resources (as part of its capital), has raised doubts about its competition in the private sector. However, by law, the tragsa group cannot compete with private companies. “One’s own media is an entity, and another public sector entity can usually order it to carry out certain activities in exchange for tariff compensation, and the public sector procurement rules do not apply to it,” the administration’s source explained.
From this brief description, it can be seen that another characteristic of it is that it is not only not competitive in the private sector, but also only commissioned in the public sector. In other words, if there is a public bidding, it can not bid like any company. In addition, their rates are set in advance every year and cannot be higher than the market rates, and are adjusted according to their cost structure and the performance of the previous year. No more than half of the work should be contracted out. In the case of subcontracting, this will change your price: the price will be marked with the lowest price, that is, the price paid to a third company.
The idea, if it works as well as the brand theory, is that companies will eventually enter the same market with the least cost or deviation. If you lose money, as happened repeatedly between 2013 and 2017, it means that your ticket price is cheaper than what you need. If it’s good, it’s the opposite. Sometimes, as in 2020, this may be due to abnormal growth in turnover. If this becomes the norm, it will have to be adjusted in two ways: by increasing its structure so that it can respond to this level of work and by further reducing rates.
Despite these safeguards, the private sector remains skeptical about this. Although time has polished the differences and drawn a line between mutual intervention. This relationship is mobile, and even the tragsa group is part of the national architectural Federation, where it maintains a mobile relationship to avoid conflicts and resolve suspicious cases. According to the company’s sources, this is a good solution because there have been few lawsuits in the past two years.
In addition to its day-to-day work (roads, roads and small infrastructure in rural areas), it also accepts work that occurs in emergency situations. For example, at the beginning of this year, Philomena had to deploy temporary troops in six autonomous regions and more than 20 provinces to restore normal conditions after snowfall.
“The trogsa group has made great efforts to focus on becoming part of all possible Administrations: in addition to the national administration and autonomous regions, it has also reformed the public sector contract act, the Parliament and the island Council and Parliament. Bartolom é Lara, vice president of SEPI, stressed that the diversity of administrations for which he could work, together with his territorial chapel, enabled him to respond very quickly to the emergencies we face.
Other tasks go beyond this standard, including managing super autonomous RTE requests, the adequacy of Canary Islands immigration camps, or managing the first six months of minimum living income. Due to the cowid-19 crisis, the design and management of European projects will also be carried out in the next few years.
