On 14 January 2010 a decree was published by the then President Luiz inácio Lula da Silva creating the World Cup Management Committee, CGCOPA 2014. On 26 July 2011, a new decree, this time signed by President Dilma Rousseff, updated the wording and including new actors in the governance structure. The main goal of the Committee is to define, approve and supervise interventions anticipated in the Brazilian government strategic plan for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
In all, 25 ministries and secretariats are part of the CGCOPA. This joint effort from the federal government takes into consideration the fact that, in addition to a big party, which the country intends to stage in unforgettable fashion, the World Cup will bring important improvements for the population, above all in the host cities. Such improvements extend beyond the football stadiums, which will be more modern, comfortable and safer, also reaching airports, ports, hotels and public transport, which will be prepared to operate more efficiently.
In the CGCOPA, there is an area called the Word Cup Executive Group (GECOPA). Made up of six ministries, plus the Presidential Staff Office and the Civil Aviation Secretariat, the CEGOPA has the aim of coordinating and consolidating interventions, establishing targets and monitoring implementation and delivery results of the 2014 World Cup integrated strategic plan.
These structures engage in dialogue and establish accountability instruments with the 2014 FIFA World Cup Local Organising Committee (LOC) and the twelve host cities.
