The Federal Court of Accounts – Brazil (TCU) presents its work results from 2019 to the Brazilian society

The Court presented the main results of its work and the most relevant initiatives implemented in 2019. The activities carried out last year generated benefits up to US$ 8,9 bn, 22 times the cost for maintaining the court.

Besides from the benefits observed, it is also estimated that preventive measures carried out by the TCU have saved approximately US$ 2,5 billion to Brazilian public coffers. Historically, the evolution of financial benefits over the last five years demonstrates that 2019 was the year with the greatest result in favor of good management of public spending, as shown in the table below:

Year

Financial benefits during the year

2015

US$ 4,506 bn

2016

US$ 1,828 bn

2017

US$ 2,058 bn

2018

US$ 4,736 bn

2019

US$ 8,902 bn

In the report, some of the works carried out by TCU are highlighted, such as the detection of misuse of US $ 1.07 billion in financing operations carried out by the Brazilian Development Bank. The amount is equivalent to more than half of the total amount of the analyzed financings.
The performance of the Court of Accounts also brought more than US$ 415,117 million in potential benefit in the evaluation of payment of social security, labor and assistance aids. The analysis of social security benefits alone shows that more than one million cases with indications of irregularities were identified.

The document also demonstrated the TCU’s finding of 52,6 thousand indications of irregularities in personnel expenses in 800 agencies of the Federal Public Administration.  The identification of these irregularities implies an estimated annual saving of US$ 301.9 million.

Other important actions of the Court were also presented, such as the supervising process of privatization of pre-salt areas, in which the Court’s performance increased the estimated collection of auction signing bonus from US$377 million to US$20 billion.

The report also showed an analysis of public works at a standstill in the country, a result of an audit that inspected more than 30 thousand public works financed with federal resources, indicating that over 30% of them are at a standstill or unfinished.

The main outcomes and benefits resulted from the activities carried out by the TCU in 2019 can be seen in the table below:
