AYALA BORRERO, María Camila; DIAZ CORDOBA, Yuliana; PEREZ RUIZ, Diego Darío  and  SERRANO GUZMAN, María Fernanda. Required public works vs. public executed works: casuistry of the Colombian Caribbean Region. Reflexiones [online]. 2017, vol.96, n.2, pp.55-66. ISSN 1659-2859.

Colombia´s natural regions are territorial divisions defined according to geographical attributes such as relief, climate, vegetation, culture, hydrography, among other aspects. This article shows the results of a research where was reviewed data regarding the relationship between needs identified in the territorial planning plans (TPP) and the infrastructure works carried out in the Caribbean region. For doing that, were reviewed the TPPs of the capital cities Riohacha, Cartagena, Barranquilla, Sincelejo, Santa Marta, Valledupar and Montería and it was checked if there was a relation between the projects,included in the EPSP Electronic Procurement Service platform, that were formulated and executed, effectively respond to the well-known problems identified by the communities. Finally, the study revealed that communities continue with unsatisfied needs about road and basic sanitation sectors, and yet the projects reported and executed correspond to other objects, which may explain the difference in the development of the region. It is questionable that, although the needs are once, the projects executed are other, a situation that the indicator of fiscal performance and municipal development in these communities demonstrate.
