This institution has been bestowed the responsibility of providing consultancy and analysis of public lighting PPP in Rio.

The law 11,079 of 2004 has enabled the modality of public contracting, which provides guidelines as to how the bidding and contracting of PPP should be done. The partnership between the government and the private sector provides an alternative to bridge the gap that exists in the public service provision, occasioned by inadequate resources. This model of the contract is supported by the administrative concession contract which has to be signed by the private companies and public administration institutions.
