To boost the hiring of local suppliers and bring business to local companies, every Thursday the Renova Foundation will hold sessions to register companies to their database. In Mariana and Barra Longa (MG), the sessions begin on February 22 and in Governador Valadares (MG) and Colatina (ES), on March 1.
To register during the event, called Supplier’s Day, the company representative must carry the memorandum of association, CNPJ card, state and municipal business registration and bank details. This is an important step for participating in Renova’s competitive processes.
Check out the hours of operation and addresses:
601 Antonio Pacheco Street – Sao Pedro, from 2 pm to 5 pm
Barra Longa (MG)
33 Pedro Jose Pimenta Avenue – Downtown, from 1 pm to 4 pm
Governador Valadares (MG):
2716 Sete de Setembro Street, room 1004 – Downtown, from 2 pm to 5 pm
66 Michel Dalla Street, room 204 – Downtown, from 2 pm. to 5 pm.
The initiative aims to bring Renova and local companies closer together, solve any doubts about the hiring process and increase the supplier database. Renova’s local contracting policy was born out of a commitment outlined in the signed Transaction and Conduct Adjustment Term (TTAC), addressing the recovery of the economy of the affected municipalities.
Renova’s contracting processes are preferential and competitive. This means that a list of companies is selected, giving preference to the 39 affected municipalities. During the process, suppliers are evaluated in the areas of technical capacity, financial capacity, health and safety, commercial proposal and compliance.
“It is important to emphasize that the Renova Foundation is working hard to ensure that the procurement and contracting of products and services occurs in a transparent and ethical way, to allow quality delivery, technical accuracy in the choice of suppliers and better negotiation conditions,” says Debora Michelassi, manager of the Supply Chain of the Renova Foundation.
Boosting and diversifying the economy
Since the beginning of its activities, the Renova Foundation is working on boosting the economy of the affected regions. There are three fronts that guide the actions: development of mechanisms to stimulate local productive chains, restitution of productive capacity of micro and small businesses and stimulation of economic diversification of municipalities that dependent on mining.
To fulfill the goals, the foundation maintains direct contact with the trade associations within the municipalities to map the suppliers. Partnerships were also established to assist Renova in this challenge. The agreements with the Minas Gerais State Industry Federation (Fiemg), with the Espirito Santo State Industry Federation (Findes) and Sebrae, for example, should qualify 3,500 people throughout the affected region by 2020.
Renova also seeks to assist local entrepreneurs by offering differentiated credit lines to leverage business, funding working capital, such as the Develop the Doce River fund, launched in 2017. There is R$ 40 million available aimed at micro and small companies, with differentiated interest and risk analysis.
Another highlight is the investment of R$ 1.1 million in small companies and startups from all over Brazil to develop and implement repair projects, a partnership with Senai. “The connection between entrepreneurship, technology and sustainability is essential in a scenario that constantly demands the generation and application of new knowledge and techniques,” says Paulo Rocha, Innovation and Economy leader at Renova.
