Aia-Eza Nacilia Gomes da Silva - Secretary of State for budget

The official who was speaking at the opening of the seminar on "Framework Agreements and Central Purchasing", said that the process of reform of public finance management necessarily requires the strict fulfillment of the Public Contracts Law and related legislation.

Aia-Eza da Silva acknowledged that the materialization of this process puts a continuous challenge and permanent identification of improvements, and counts on the contribution of all.

She pointed out that the implementation of framework agreements will allow greater control in the field of public procurement, as is the case of planning and aggregation of needs common to all State apparatus, standardization of goods, services and public works contracts for the satisfaction of needs and speed of public procurement procedures, among other benefits.

Regarding the central purchasing, it was essential that it be promoted as an instrument for the centralization of acquisitions.

Procurement should be seen as a crucial instrument of sound public financial management, she said.

For this reason, she recommended the public managers to prepare projects to be executed in a realistic way, to allow standardized and transversal purchases.
