“It has several causes. Corruption, without a doubt, is one of them. But, technically, the root of all these problems, in which corruption also has something to do, is the enormous deficiency in the technical files and the precariousness of the pre-investment studies from which the projects are developed”, Comptroller Nelson Shack explained to the aforementioned Sunday program.

Shack noted that the problem is also related to the cost overrun in public works, which is 44%. “I fear that this figure of 2,300 paralyzed works is going to grow in a short time and, quietly, we could be at 3,000 works by the end of the year,” the comptroller also warned.

César Candela, an expert in government and public procurement, warned that another problem is that officials dedicated to managing public works are not fully trained.
