The IBGE has published its 2023 Management Report, after effecting changes in the format of the publication. The document, which is a demand from the Brazilian Court of Audit (TCU) for federal agencies, is annually produced and posted on the IBGE website. The deadline for release was March 31. Click here to read the 2023 report.

The 2023 Management Report will be released in an event this Tuesday (04/09), at Casa G20, in RJ, together with the study Creating Synergies between the 2030 Agenda and G20 - Inequalities booklet with first analyses, and the Geographic School Atlas. Watch here the event live at 4 pm.

The 2023 Management Report, a duty of the Management and Planning Department, started being produced in December last year. Since then, issues related to the elaboration of the text were discussed in meetings with members of the IBGE directorates, departments and units directly linked with the presidency. For the first time, the report will have a multimedia version. Besides the printed and the digital formats, it will be available for consultation as an e-book. As for the printed version, unprecedently, recycled material was used to produce the booklet. An institutional video about the content was also produced. The improvements in the document format have been made under the supervision of CDDI CCS, following presidency guidance, in order to ensure modernization of the Institute’s communication pieces.

"More than an annual accountability document, the Management Report is a daily commitment we make to society in order to fulfill IBGE's mission: to portray Brazil with the information necessary to understand its reality and exercise citizenship", says Marcio Pochmann, president of the IBGE. He recalls that the biggest challenge overcome by the Institute in 2023 was the conclusion of the 2022 Demographic Census. At the same time as the census operation, the IBGE followed its regular schedule of releasing results, providing statistical and geoscientific information, as well as its activities in higher education, research and extension.

"In 2023, more than 200 results related to statistical information were released, including regularly published data, such as those on illiteracy or agricultural production, and yet unpublished results on teleworking and work through digital platforms. Twenty-three geoscientific surveys were also released, including the updated Digital Municipal Mesh, which provides information for municipal maps and new territorial area values, and updated statistics on endangered species in Brazilian biomes," Pochmann adds.

The IBGE’s 2023 Management Report has several new features compared to editions of previous years. According to Hugo Couto, IBGE's Strategy and Sustainability Manager, "the content has been restructured to make it easier to understand the work done by the IBGE. We took as a reference what is done in other bodies, such as the Central Bank and the TCU. Another change, also with the intention of improving the reader's experience, was the adoption of a more concise text. For example, the 2022 report had 219 pages. In 2023, that number was reduced to 150 pages, a reduction of more than 30%”.

Hugo Couto explains that the IBGE’s 2023 Management Report was built based on the IBGE Business Model. "In the first chapter of the document, entitled 'Who we are', we describe what the IBGE is and how it is organized, its governance structure, strategic plan, integrity system, work processes, and the entire internal structure of the Institute. The second chapter addresses the human resources employed and how other resources (materials, natural resources, budget and finance, information technology, relationships, and communication) are used in the activities of the Institute. The third chapter contains the results, with the disclosures made throughout the year", he says.

"In this edition of the Management Report, the biggest challenges were the reorganization of the chapters, which involved a slight redesign of the graphic project, and the decision to print the document, which had only been released in digital format. The reduction in the number of chapters, a decision by the technical area, made the report more concise. The print version has a slightly smaller format than the e-book, which has a navigation sidebar. This adaptability across media was considered from the beginning of the project, which made the process easier", says Leonardo Martins, the IBGE's Publishing Manager.

As it usually occurs, due to the extensive scope of the Management Report, a large number of professionals from different areas of the IBGE contributed to the production of the document. For the Institute's chief auditor, Carlos Alberto Vianna Costa, "the report is an opportunity to contribute to correct and transparent communication with the Brazilian society. It's valuable to be able to report that our institution complies with legal requirements and disseminates information with the aim of making its institutional mission better understood”.

"One of the challenges of this work is to produce an integrated report, with society and citizens as the main recipients. In recent years, we have been making an effort to make the report easier to understand and to explain how the IBGE achieves its objectives, how it gives results that meet the needs of the public interest, in other words, how the IBGE creates public value," observes Ana Bruno, IBGE's Planning and Management coordinator.

Philippe Tavares, from the IBGE's General Coordination of Census Operations, praises the efforts and commitment of the Institute's staff during the preparation of the 2023 Management Report. "It was gratifying to take part in this portrait that the IBGE draws of itself year after year, in an effort to certify to society its commitment to the efficient allocation of resources. Within this same scope of purposes, the IBGE was engaged in producing a didactic and agile text, made dynamic by the charms of design", he says.
