Brazil launches online platform to monitor suspended work in states and municipalities
States and municipalities will now be able to point out to the federal government those suspended works that need to be resumed as a matter of priority. The Mãos à Obra (Get to Work) platform, a monitoring system that will allow local authorities to update a database of frozen or pending projects in their regions, has been launched, as reported by Rede TV!, a partner of TV BRICS.
Developed by the Federal Data Processing Service (Serpro) in less than 30 days, the platform will indicate which projects deserve a more urgent resumption. This tool will help the federal government to map and prioritise.
According to the ministry, mayors and governors should prioritise projects aimed at health, education, sports and culture. The list should also include facilities from the Minha Casa, Minha Vida social programme and projects from the Ministry of Cities portfolio.
Municipal and state leaders have until 10 April to update the information.
In partnership with ministries, the Civic Chamber will analyse the database. Based on the president's instructions, they will determine which works should be resumed immediately.
According to Serpro, the Mãos à Obra platform was developed in record time. The public company used LowCode technology, which speeds up app and website development, and WebApp architecture, which improves accessibility and interactivity with users in both web browsers and on mobile devices.
According to Serpro, the product concept and prototype required intensive use of UX tools that provide better flexibility for service users. Data science methods have also been adopted to support the process of obtaining, checking, crossing and consolidating databases.
