To provide useful information to decision makers for a public resources rationalization, this paper compares the "Capitanerie di porto" expenditure profiles with the services offered. The study is divided into two parts. In the first, through the production factor analysis (input) and the provided services (output), we build a set of performance indicators linked to specific performance. In the second part we attain an efficiency estimation through Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). The variables used in the analysis are personnel and structure costs as input and the results of the activity as output.
