Italian term or phrase: elevazione a centro di costo
e "elevazione a" che non capisco in questo contesto....

L’OdV reputa altresì necessario procedere alla versione 2005 del Modello 231, destinata a recepire gli aggiornamenti conseguenti al d.m. 201/03 e all’ultima versione delle Linee Guida Confindustria per la redazione dei modelli organizzativi previsti nel d. lgs. 231/01. Lamenta, infine, la perdurante carenza di un budget, ritenendolo essenziale per una migliore gestione dell’attività dell’organismo: a questo proposito, viene avanzata la richiesta di **elevazione a** centro di costo, a partire dalla seconda metà del 2005

English translation:upgraded/promoted/turned into a to cost centre
Explanation:
I think what the writer is trying to say is that, in order to get a budget, the specific unit/body needs to be turned into a cost centre, so it get can resources allocated to it. i am not sure upgrade or promote are the right terms, though...

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Grey Drane: Yeah, "elevated" etc. is a bit strange for a "supervisory body" which is functionally above or separate from everything else, but I guess it's "elevated" from a cost/budget point of view.

  -> thanks! i agree, italian formal writing is unnecessarily complicated sometimes...

agree  Jim Tucker: these all sound possible. You could also use neutral language and still keep the idea of promotion: "designated (as) a cost center"
