In partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Mapa), the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation is testing the SA Project Manager module in its project office. Mapa maintains a contract with Interact and has been using the SA Performance Manager and SA Project Manager modules since May 2020
According to Tiago Toledo Ferreira, Executive Director of Institutional Development at Embrapa, the request to use Suite SA was motivated by the company’s quest to strengthen and consolidate excellence in institutional governance and management. “We researched innovative methodologies on this topic used in Public Administration, we identified and adapted our model based on the project management methodology adopted by Mapa, which already uses the software”, he explains.
To implement the model, adds Tiago, the need arose to use the tool, which makes planning and monitoring of projects viable. “Thus, we requested authorization to use Suite SA for evaluation through use in the strategic management of five corporate pilot projects for Embrapa”, he concludes.
