The State attorneys are responsible, therefore, for representing the State of Mato Grosso do Sul and all its agencies and foundations in the actions promoted by or against the federated entity and other entities, as well as being responsible for the legal guidance of the public managers in the implementation of public policies, thus fulfilling an important role in defending the Constitution and the Democratic State of Law.
This legal guidance carried out by State attorneys within the scope of each Secretary of State, autarchy and public foundation, provides legal certainty for the practice of any administrative/normative act by public authorities in the exercise of their powers.
The work of public advocacy is largely focused on the protection of public property and the exercise of citizenship, since its performance is marked by the regulation and adequacy of public policies idealized by managers, to the legal frameworks established in various normative commands, enabling the improvements desired by the population can be effectively received by citizens.
