President Lula (PT) sanctioned, without vetoes, Law 14,823/24, which establishes additional specialization and qualification (AEQ) for employees of the Federal Audit Court (TCU).

The new law originates from a project (PL 7,926/14) proposed by the Court itself and authorizes the payment of additional fees for extension, undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Published in the Official Gazette of the Union (DOU), on March 28, 2024, the Law establishes the following percentages, levied on the highest basic salary for the position:

• 15% for doctorate (maximum of one course);
• 10% for master’s degrees (maximum of two courses);
• 8% for post-doctoral educational action or international training program, with a minimum workload of 120 hours (maximum of one action);
• 6% for lato sensu postgraduate courses, at specialization level, with a minimum workload of 360 hours (maximum of three courses);
• 5% for graduation (maximum of one course);
• 2% for obtaining professional certification (maximum of five certifications);
• 0.5% for training actions, offered or recognized by the TCU, totaling 60 hours (maximum of one action per year and 12 actions in total).

According to the text, the AEQ cannot exceed 30% of the highest basic salary for the position. The additional specialization will also integrate retirement and pension benefits.

In the justification of the project sent to the Chamber in 2014, the TCU says that “with regard to the professional development and defense of civil servants, it is clear that, in the information age, the capital that starts to have greater importance in strategic assessments is, certainly, , one that surrounds intangible assets with human capital”.

“The quality and relevance of TCU’s work are indispensable, both for the National Congress and for social control and promotion of reflections in academia”, says another excerpt from the project.
