TECHNOLOGY Across the federal public sector, 1,000 services have become more accessible to the population online
By Victor Maciel
In an effort to facilitate consultation and popularize online access, the Ministry of Tourism has digitized 43 services since last year. The registration of artists or bands for the selection of events, researching tourist parties and requesting the “Responsible Tourism” seal, for example, are actions that are now just a click away from Brazilians. Across the Federal Government, a thousand services have already been digitized and can be accessed by 81.23 million people registered on Gov.br. The estimated savings are about R $ 2 billion per year, of which R $ 1.5 billion for the population and approximately R $ 500 million for the government. For the Minister of Tourism, Marcelo Álvaro Antônio, the efficiency of the public sector is one of the flags that are worked to improve the life of the population and reduce the costs of the State. “We are in a completely digital world, and nothing is more just than having services like these easily accessible to Brazilians. In tourism, we are committed to bringing more agility and efficiency to improve travel and the experience of visiting every corner of our country ”, he said. According to the Ministry of Economy, approximately 150 million hours per year are saved by citizens with the reduction of bureaucracy, travel and paperwork. This is equivalent to a full day’s work for the entire economically active population of Greater São Paulo. In the same period, about 88 million services are no longer in person at public agency agencies, making life easier for the user. The Federal Government proposes that by the end of 2020, 100% of the more than 3.8 thousand are fully digitized. The expectation is that there will be savings of R $ 38 billion between the years 2020 and 2025, with the elimination of paper and bureaucracy, leasing of structures and maintenance of this logistics, hiring personnel for face-to-face service, and reducing losses with errors and fraud in public services.GOV.Br – In order to unify all the services of the federal government in one place, the Gov.Br platform received, in September alone, about 15 million accesses. There, citizens can obtain information on coronaviruses, apply for unemployment insurance and even check fines and other services from the country’s inspection bodies. In addition, citizens can access the latest information on actions by federal agencies to improve the lives of Brazilians. Edition: Rafael Brais
