A pesquisa aborda o tema compras governamentais a partir da análise de conteúdo de Acórdãos do Tribunal de Contas da União emitidos para as universidades federais brasileiras entre 2017 e 2018, abrangendo a aquisição de material de consumo e bens permanentes. Esse conteúdo apresentou exigências para a gestão universitária sobre compras governamentais, licitação e procedimentos no pregão eletrônico. Foram selecionados 41 Acórdãos dentre mais de 49 mil emitidos nesse período. Na análise de conteúdo constatou-se que houve repetição de uma mesma recomendação de auditoria para diferentes universidades, fato que evidencia a necessidade de monitoramento para implantação de práticas em gestão da informação. Os resultados apontam para exigências de aprimoramento da gestão universitária, tais como a sistematização de conhecimentos tácitos em manuais sobre os procedimentos nas compras governamentais. A investigação aborda uma área considerada de baixa materialidade pela auditoria, mas de alto risco de responsabilização personalíssima para as autoridades competentes das universidades federais brasileiras.

The Construction Industry is responsible for over 30% of the extraction of natural resources, as well as 25% of solid waste generated in the world. This happens because the construction sector mostly adopts a linear economic model of “take, make, dispose”, using materials to the construction of buildings and disposing them at the end of life, since they are assembled for one time use and don’t retain potential for reuse. Over the last decades, a paradigm shift has been occurring in the industry at large, with the adoption of a Circular Economy model, that aims at keeping the materials in a closed loop to retain their maximum value, therefore with a greater potential of reducing the waste generation and resources extraction for the Construction Industry. This article aims at finding the recent developments of how Circular Economy can be used inside the construction industry. To achieve this goal, a systematic literature review was conducted, including 45 articles that were divided into six areas of research: development of Circular Economy, reuse of materials, material stocks, Circular Economy in the built environment, LCA analysis and material passport. An analysis of the content of these articles was made and the knowledge gaps in this area were identified, as well as table with known Circular Economy practices for the Construction Industry was created divided by life cycle stages. Finally, a discussion of each area of research and their findings is made.
Purpose Lean office covers the improvement of administrative processes and information flows. In offices, one of the essential challenges is to coordinate the development of information management capabilities. Thus, this paper aims to identify the key factors of information management in lean office deployment contexts. Design/methodology/approach By adopting a qualitative approach, it consists of theoretical research that applies grounded theory's coding technique and exploits 27 scientific studies on lean office published in the past 20 years. Findings It identifies five key factors for managing information into an organizational structure that optimizes information flow, such as “information-seeking,” “access to information,” “information quality,” “information processing” and “use of information and communication technology”. Research limitations/implications Data analysis was restricted in scientific research regarding lean office deployment. Therefore, the accuracy of the concepts and categories of information management proposed in this paper can be adjusted and validated in future research, thus deepening the discussion of its findings. Practical implications It highlights issues for managing information in contemporary organizations such as failures in information retrieval, restrictions on access to information, lack of quality information, inadequate information processing criteria and inefficiency of information systems infrastructure. Originality/value It analyzes the lean office deployment from the theoretical framework of information management. Thus, it differs from other studies in this field because it is not limited to the operational aspects of lean management. Nevertheless, it shows that lean office reconfigures information flows and continually improves organizations’ strategic management.

The various positive impacts that knowledge management (KM) offers to organisations that effectively apply it are fully consolidated in the literature. Nonetheless, even large enterprises, although usually abundant of human, financial and technological resources, are not always expressively successful on applying that concept. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) present numerous additional characteristics, challenges and obstacles to the implantation of KM. To contribute to change that reality, it is clear from the scientific perspective the importance of the effort to consolidate the state of art of knowledge on this field, especially because the last similar work dates to 2012 and significant research in different countries has been produced since then. In addition, just a few of previous works have their main goal like what is here presented. Thus, the present article is a systematic review of the literature of the relevant specificities of SMEs for KM in a global perspective.
Research on supply chain management (SCM) has gained pre-eminence since 1990s as a result of its potential to generate opportunities to accrue value to the companies, and to compete advantageously. It is of the essence to comprehend the dimensions regarding the maturity and performance of SCM as well as the perception of the interrelations among them. This research renders findings from theoretical framework application in a global truck manufacturing company. The methodology adopted was a case study with the aim of identifying the characteristics of each maturity dimension and classifying the SCM level of maturity in this operation. Findings demonstrate that evidence of the cause-effect relations among dimensions is compatible with the projections of the theoretical framework. Moreover, it also provided strong indication that the intervening effects of business process is present and expected in the model. To sum up, it lays the foundations for specific issues that may come to the spotlight in future research
