Paulo Rocha, leader in the field, spoke of the actions of the institution to stimulate the economy of the municipalities impacted by the collapse of the Fundão dam
The topic of the third live chat session of the Renova Foundation was the stimulation of local contracting. Paulo Rocha, leader in the field of economics and innovation, interacted with the Internet users about the importance of prioritizing the use of labor and suppliers from 40 municipalities impacted by the collapse of the Fundão dam in the repair actions managed by the institution.
The support for local contracting by the Renova Foundation takes place through two axes: technical training actions and development of internal procedures to prioritize the contracting of local labor and suppliers.
The first step of the actions is a study of prospecting and diagnosis of the demands of the localities and also of the availability of labor. From there on an Action Plan is created which provides for five axes:
• Supplier qualification and certification program, qualification and intermediation of labor
• Strengthening of entities offering business classes
• Disclosure of local companies (supplier registration, website and catalog)
• Enabling business
The next action of the Renova Foundation to stimulate the local economy will be a Series of Lectures, which will visit seven municipalities of Minas Gerais and Espirito Santo that were impacted by the collapse of the Fundão dam.
The meetings aim to present opportunities to the companies of these localities in means of contracts for providing services and supplying products to the Renova Foundation, since the very same challenge of recovery of the regions can stir up the local economy.
The idea is to prepare and inform entrepreneurs about the contractual needs required by Renova, as well as contributing to the creation of a list of local suppliers for the purchasing processes of the institution. Therefore, each area of the entity, part of this registration and contracting process, will give a lecture explaining the procedures regarding the sector it represents, such as sourcing and financial.
The live chats sessions take place every month, with the objective of continuing the collective construction of solutions, as well as sharing information with society about the progress of the Renova Foundation actions.
