Governments must innovate if they are to be effective. In a world of change, a government that stands still will soon be overtaken by events and shifting citizen expectations. This report explores the past, present and possible future journey of the innovation system of the Brazilian public service. It outlines a systemic approach for innovation to mitigate existing biases, and identifies a range of options for the development of a consistent, deliberate and reliable approach to innovation in the public service of Brazil.



Innovation is, and always has been, a defining part of the public sector. The public sector needs it to fulfil its obligations to government, to citizens and to service users. As the world evolves faster and faster, the operating context and the needs of citizens are also in flux, making innovation ever more relevant and essential.
