Created in 1986, the Information Technology Sector was the beginning of a permanent institutional movement to modernize and insert technology into the work processes of the Public Ministry of Rondônia. The unit, established according to the scenario in which telephony and energy services were still in the beginning in the country, would have its first microcomputer in 1988. Today, the Directorate, the area of ​​information technology (DTI) is a reference in system development, offering current solutions, which are reflected in good providing services to society. One of them is online collaborative production, the so-called cloud work.

Attention to the field of information technology began with regard to the need for automation of administrative routines and the basic activities of the state ministry. In 1988, the Rondônia MP took an important step towards its modernization process by hiring a São Paulo company to prepare a Master Plan for Information Technology. The document would direct investments in the sector, generating, as a result, decisions that took place in the technological infrastructure of the institution.

In the same year, the Ministry of Public Procurement hired the first specialist for data processing, and at the same time the institution acquired its first microcomputer XPC – MSDos. The machine, a sort of ancestor of the equipment that exists today, was basically used for calculations and spreadsheets.

After the development of a system for internal use to control the spending of institutions, in 1990 the first national projection initiative, CIPÓ, an acronym for the control of police investigations, was developed. The idea was to register and track inquiries that came to the representative in the state. So the state attorneys filled out the forms and forwarded them to Porto Velho so that the data could be entered into the system. Manual control was necessary due to the lack of satellite or optical communications in the region at the time, which prevented the MP from operating online.

Then the Sympathetic System, which is now fully electronic, was put into operation, intended for the Office of General Affairs to monitor the activities carried out by members of the MPRO throughout the country. The first system for the control of judicial, extrajudicial and administrative procedures was established in the 2000s and was called Campo.

Uniform tables – in 2009, the Department of Information Technology of the Ministry of Public Affairs of Rondônia was entrusted with one of the most important missions: to develop a project of uniform procedural tables within the framework of the Brazilian MP. The initiative aimed at standardization and taxonomic and terminological standardization of classes, cases and judicial/extrajudicial procedural movement, in units of the public ministry of the states and the Union.

The project was awarded to that institution in recognition of its pioneering spirit in the field. In 2008, a year before the national project was formalized, the MPRO already had an integration program with the Rondônia justice tables, which attracted the attention of the leaders of the justice system in Brazil at the time. Thus, as the bearer of knowledge about the issue, the local member of parliament was appointed as the national coordinator.

The project led by the MPRO was successful, and the implementation of the taxonomy was initiated by a decision of the National Council of Public Ministry (CNMP). Thus, the units of the Brazilian State Attorney’s Office adapted their internal systems and all judicial and extrajudicial cases processed in the units of the Public Ministry began to be registered according to unique tables of classes, cases and movements. The innovation is considered an important evolution in the work of the Brazilian representative.

Office 365 – The institution continued to invest in modernization in the following years. In 2020, MPRO acquired an advanced technology resource used by large organizations to improve online collaboration. Microsoft’s Office 365 is a cloud-based storage, communication, collaboration and productivity solution.

“The Office suite has definitely brought MP into the 21st century, providing the institution with greater productivity and performance in the work performed by its members and servers, always focusing on better meeting the demands of society. Procurement was fundamental to maintaining operations during the pandemic period,” says Director of Information Technology, João Ricardo da Silva.

The constant expansion of the computer park, the completion of the Electronic Extrajudicial System, in the 3rd level districts, and the recent acquisition of a new external modular data center, mark the latest innovations of the Public Ministry in the field of technology.

In 2022, almost 60 acquisitions for the improvement and modernization of the technological infrastructure of the Ministry of Justice are underway or have been completed. The computer park was significantly expanded with the purchase of microcomputers; notebooks; video monitors and printers, scanners and graphics tablets, plus BI software licenses, business reporting tools.

The second investment refers to contracting a hyperconverged infrastructure solution for the Oracle environment. The innovation significantly expanded the Institution’s data storage capacity.

TI also ensured the modernization of the digital signature system, along with updating the Cabinet system. The acquisition of a tool for controlling access to the Institution’s units, through facial recognition, is also a novelty, a resource that in an integrated way enhances the security of entry into the premises of the Parliament.

MP 4.0 – Secretary General of the MPRO, prosecutor Dandy de Jesus Leite Borges, explains that the focus on optimizing and modernizing the working processes of the MP in Rondônia has continuously intensified. As another initiative that adds concepts and technological models to the institution, he cites the implementation of the MPRO 4.0 Program.

“The model is characterized by enhancing the use of technological means to increase productivity, efficiency and provide the best service to society. For that, investments in technology are key,” says the Secretary General.

For the Attorney General, Ivanilda de Oliveira, investments and acquisitions in the IT field reflect the institutional concern not only to maintain the technological field of the MPRO as a reference in the country, but, mainly, to serve society in a fast and efficient way. “Over the years, our institution has consolidated itself as a repository of good practice, innovating with the development of resources and tools that contribute to the effective fulfillment of the constitutional mission of the Brazilian Public Ministry. We know that this trajectory necessarily passes through the technological area,” he says.
