The TST (Superior Labor Court) hired state-owned Dataprev (Social Security Technology and Information Company), without bidding, to provide services for supplying the CPF and CNPJ databases through blockchain technology.

The information is contained in an extract from the bidding waiver published in this Tuesday (30th) edition of the Official Gazette. The contract is for R $ 73,196.30 for the initial 12 months, and R $ 23,645.04 for the year for subsequent periods.

Also according to the statement, the waiver is based on item XVI of Law No. 8,666 / 93, which regulates bidding issues in Brazil. He mentions the "provision of computer services to legal entities under domestic public law, by bodies or entities that are part of the Public Administration, created for this specific purpose" among the hypotheses in which the bidding is waived.

Linked to the Ministry of Economy, Dataprev is responsible for the management of the Brazilian social database. At the moment, one of the main tasks of the company is the processing of requests for emergency assistance. The benefit was created by the federal government in response to the crisis generated by the new coronavirus.

Blockchain services

In addition to the TST, other state agencies have sought Dataprev for services based on the technology on which bitcoin is based.

In December 2018, the then Ministry of Planning – later incorporated into the Economy portfolio – hired Dataprev to provide data access service for the Federal Reserve's Blockchain permissioned network.

A month earlier, Dataprev jointly developed with the Federal Revenue a system for exchanging information from the CPFs registration base based on technology.

To provide these services, Dataprev called the Blockchain Academy course company to provide technology training to its servers.
