Brazil to shift government sites to single domain

The Brazilian government announced plans to consolidate public sector information onto a single website.

The platform, to be named Gov.br, is hoped to go live in less than two years and generate yearly savings of up to 100 million reais ($25.4 million) following the deactivation of the current network, president Jair Bolsonaro said on Twitter earlier this week.

The first phase of implementation of the project is expected to complete by July 31, with a final deadline for migration to the central platform set for December 31, 2020.

“We want only one [information channel] to exist, that citizens in any part of Brazil can access and resolve any and every issue,” Bolsonaro said.  

Maintaining thousands of citizen services across a variety of websites renders public services provision expensive and difficult, the Brazilian president noted.
