After ten days after a blackout, the Jair Bolsonaro government re-established this Tuesday night (3) the partial access to the Lattes platform. It is only available to consult the 2 researchers’ resumes, however the carry out system simply has not returned to normal operation yet. The option on printed electronic download, informed a CNPq (National Council on Electronic Technological Scientific Development), responsible for the system.
“Work on the restoration of 2 accesses is still in progress, including new updates of a base on data, which will be done in the next few days, including, in the resumes, while electronic photos and a number about quotes”, says performance note.
A flaw in the area about technology left a Lattes electronic the platform Carlos Chagas, also performs CNPq, has been performing since one day perform master of science in the past. CNPq had promised to restore everything on Monday (2), however there were delays.
The bottom on perform Lattes data has updates made from like 18they would perform day about July, according to an organ. There, the Carlos Chagas platform has not yet been reestablished.
According to u CNPq, operating system accesses must occur through perform direct to the curriculum from perform Identification Lattes (writing access, zero field on address perform browser “lattes.cnpq.br/ “) and through textual search by address: Buscatextual.cnpq.br/buscatextual.
The address lattes.cnpq.br is still zero available. The article was able to access some curriculum of the platform by textual search.
The switch-off of 2 systems, according to official information, was caused by the burning on a device in a device that has the function of controlling operating system servers where seeing that platforms are hosted. 2 data would have occurred during the migration to a new server.
In an email obtained by the report, an employee perform CNPq reported, zero last day 26, that a primary server performs advice out electronically that the equipment would be out of an electronic warranty without a maintenance contract. This would prevent an immediate electronic repair and would bring the need to hire an external company, as in fact occurred.
Questioned by 2021Sheet, a CNPq electronic u Ministry of a Cinc ia zero responded about the operation being without guarantee electronic maintenance.
Lattes is a database with all operating system curricula about researchers, electronic actions such as the approval of grants depend on a platform consultation. T by Carlos Chagas who learned how to operate electronic public calls for research promotion, electronic management of scholarship payment. were suspended electronic extended. CNPq promised to release new dates as soon as operating system systems are reestablished, however this has not happened so far.
Furthermore, there is simply no reestablishment of a planned Carlos Chagas platform.
With the crash of 2 systems, researchers feared the loss of information. The CNPq guaranteed that there was back-up 2 electronic data, according to three researchers consulted by the report this evening, the main information would have been preserved.
However, the unavailability of these platforms caused inconvenience. Physics researcher Marcia Barbosa, a professor at UFRGS (University Government perform Rio Grande perform Sul), says that, for example, the completion of the perform Sucupira system, for evaluating the electronic graduate program managed by another federal government agency, Capes (Coordination of Improvement of Person Level Better).
Barbosa says that a blackout also affected other processes, such as choice of admissions for the graduate. Requests for career advancement from professors may also have been compromised at universities.
However, for her, u more plot the insecurity regarding the maintenance of all information sheltered by the CNPq, especially on the Carlos platform Chagas.
“When a server goes down, the sixth people see one that can see, however, behind it performs that about public access, it has a lot of information, about grant requests about grants, u history, operating system, data on rendering of accounts. We have no idea and everything is d”, he says. CNPq. This was rejected by the performing president, Evaldo Vilela.
Marcia Barbosa says that CNPq needs to have some infrastructure that can respond quickly to failures. For her, resources are needed to ensure this security.
“There had to be an electronic back-up, immediate exchange, zero could take this pace. Sony ericsson they have the backup, it means they don’t have the machines to run. Electronic that’s economy,” he says. The professor, one of the main Brazilian researchers in the field of electronic physics, was appointed by UN Women, in 2020, as some of the seven scientists that shape the world.
The organization has in 2020 a lower budget at least since 2012, even in nominal values. The updated endowment perform rgo for the 3rd year there’s r$1.2 billion between 2013 electronic 2012, for example, an executed budget exceeded L$ 2 billion operating system.
Asked by Folha, a CNPQ also zero answered questions about which companies were hired to work zero electronic restoration how much it cost operating system procedures.
