The RNP Inter-Ministry Program (PRO-RNP) was created in October 1999 to finance the implementation and the maintenance of an advanced academic internet network.
Currently, the program provides joint investments by the Ministries of Science, Technology, Innovations and Communications (MCTIC), Education (MEC), Health (MS), Citizenship and Defense (MD).
To coordinate the program, a Management Committee (CG-RNP) was created to ensure the achievement of the goals and to define the PI-RNP guidelines and operationality, as well as to set operating rules, establish implementation schedules and to clarify doubts and divergences in the work development. CG-RNP is coordinated by representatives of the ministries in alternate mandates of one year, and planning, implementation, operation and coordination of the network is under the RNP responsibility.
