Union mobilizes managers in search of excellence in resource transfers


Goal is to bring capacity building to all municipalities that receive federal resources by 2022

Organs and entities that enter into partnerships with states, municipalities and civil society organizations can freely train their teams to adopt good governance and management practices. The objective is to ensure the excellence of the results achieved for society in the transfer of resources destined to agreements and onlending agreements.

The new guidelines were published this Monday (24/6), in  Normative Instruction No. 5/2019 , and are described in the " Model of Excellence in Management of Union Transfers " (MEG-Tr).

Each institution should self-assess - according to established criteria - and then plan the steps to improve the management of the transfer of resources. "It's a unique opportunity. We are working to simplify, reduce bureaucracy, rethinking the role of the State and our way of implementing public policies, "said Paulo Uebel, the Special Secretary for Debureaucratization, Management and Digital Government of the Ministry of Economy.


MEG-Tr offers public managers a reference based on international standards. It allows the implantation of a broad diagnosis of the management and the realization of continuous evaluation cycles. The methodology was built collaboratively with the National Quality Foundation (FNQ), which provided the model with no financial cost. "MEG-Tr is already an experience that has worked well and can be a pilot project for a Brazilian competitiveness management program that mobilizes the whole country," said FNQ president Jairo Martins.

Normative Instruction No. 5/2019 continues a project to modernize the Union transfers to reduce the transaction costs of the agreements and promote the transparency of the actions, as well as to improve the effectiveness in the application of public resources.  


In order to promote the training of public managers in the municipalities of the 27 states and the Federal District, the Ministry of Economy and the National School of Public Administration (Enap) developed a  course on MEG-TR . In all, 300 multipliers were trained on the subject. The government's goal is to bring training to all municipalities receiving federal resources by 2022.

In IN nº 5/2019, five procedures were established: 
1) To register the adhesion to the MEG-Tr in the  Portal of the Agreements ;
