The DTT proposal not only considers the fundamental technical and scientific aspects, but also includes a careful financial and managerial analysis. It is organized taking into account that only a careful management of all human and financial resources can guarantee the success of the initiative. Regarding the financial aspects, the project analyzes the costs of both engineering design and construction phases, reporting a breakdown of the expenses and their time evolution. The study also considers the expected financial revenues in terms of consistency, funding channels, and time evolution. The organization and government layout (organs, functions, relationships) has been designed pursuing the best balance between autonomy and accountability, transparency and cooperation. The paper also discusses the capability of the ENEA Frascati site to host the device and, in addition, examines the socio-economic impact expected by the long, expansive presence of a high number of scientists and technicians in the area.
