A study carried out by the State Comptroller General (CGE) found that the 11 state-owned or mixed-capital companies of the government of Santa Catarina have advanced in the areas of public management in integrity and governance in recent years, but more needs to be done. These areas ensure correct management, that is, within the laws. The result was presented at an internal forum that deals with these topics in the government.

The survey involved Ciasc (a company that takes care of the state’s technology sector), Cidasc (health care), Epagri (agricultural research and rural extension), Badesc (investment agency), Casan, Ceasa, Celesc, SCGás, SCPar, Porto de Imbituba and Port of São Francisco.

The mapping was carried out by administrator Pollyanna Sá, a scholarship holder from Fapesc, the Santa Catarina Research and Innovation Support Foundation. The work was supervised by the coordination of CGE’s Integrity and Compliance department.

According to the study, more than 90% of government state-owned companies responded that they have several management actions in the areas of integrity and governance.

The list includes integrity programs, reporting channels, mechanisms to investigate signs of irregularities and conflicts of interest, code of ethics and/or conduct, independent board of directors, and permanently operating fiscal councils. They also have guidelines for budget and financial management and for bidding and contracting procedures, among others.

But the diagnosis also showed that some companies need greater attention on some points, especially improvements in integrity, transparency and sustainability issues.

For half of them, there is a lack, for example, of a set of standardized procedures for monitoring irregularity investigations, an internal audit structure in accordance with the law on state-owned companies, an information security policy and sustainable criteria and practices defined in hiring.

According to the State’s general controller, Marcio Cassol, CGE, as coordinator of the State’s Integrity and Compliance Program, will deliver an individualized x-ray to all companies with suggestions for necessary actions.

CGE’s Integrity and Compliance manager, Carlos Petiz Junior, considered the information gathered in the mapping valuable. He said that the controller works for the State to be a reference in relation to the governance of public companies in the country.
