Benefits of a Partnership between the Government and Private Firms on the Country’s Basic Sanitation Services

Just recently, the government announced its intentions to make concessions by partnering with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. During an interview, the president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos explained a few things about the initiative while expressing his confidence that the services offered will go through major transformations with respect to management, structure-wise, and in the resource areas – as reported by Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure project specialist.

According to Edison on executives.findthecompany.com, 90 percent of Brazil’s basic sanitation services are performed by public power. While noting that the state organization serves approximately 70 percent of the users, Edison argued that the presence of private project does not justify public exclusion because the two types of management can complement each other. He also added that the government organization has extensive experience that can be leveraged through its partnership with the private firms.

Felipe Montoro Jens mentioned water wastage as one of the major things affecting the flow of financial resources. While responding to this, Edison explained on odebrecht.com that private enterprise possesses more resources than state organizations, and the more reasons it is a crucial ally in the war against water wastage. Edison also cited advancement of technology as yet another strategy that can help to prevent wastage of water especially if more investments are made in the sewage networks.

While commenting about the equality of private and public organizations with respect to their ability to offer adequate services at http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=113457657&privcapId=45984138&previousCapId=45984138&previousTitle=Energipar%20Capta%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20S.A., Edison said that the efficiency of a company is not measured by its administration – but rather by its ability to meet the needs of the users, and manage costs effectively.
