The government has announced that it intends to make concessions via a partnership with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. The president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos, gave his opinion on the issue during an interview. Edison believes that the move will improve the structure and management of the services offered. He also says that it will result in better use of resources.
Edison further mentions that 90% of basic sanitation services are done by private offices, and 70% of the users get services from state organizations. Edison argues that just because private firms are doing the work does not mean the public should be excluded. Instead, the two can work in a complementary manner and achieve much more than what the private firms can attain on their own. Government entities have a great experience that can be leveraged through the partnership of companies.
Edison notes that the private enterprises have more resources that make them useful in preventing wastage of water. The companies have an advanced technology which is essential for water management. According to Edison, the current situation of Brazil requires the work of such organizations to create an impact on the financial situation of the public institutions.
According to the report issued by Felipe Montoro Jens, Edison emphasizes that it is vital to have goals that are clear when coming up with contracts and during the adoption of public agencies inspections where the services will be provided. The representative of Edison believes that it is important for governors to review the activities that are presented during concession and verify that the existing agreement is honored.
