Portuguese term or phrase: ouvidoria
Nova estrutura do INSS
Estrutura sistêmica nas áreas de Comunicação Social, Ouvidoria e Informações Institucionais
The dictionaries only give the colonial meaning, which would hardly apply here

Explanation:
Nova estrutura do INSS = New struture of INSS
Estrutura sistêmica nas áreas de Comunicação Social, Ouvidoria e Informações Institucionais = Systemized structure in the domains of social communication, admittance, and institutional information

By ouvidoria they usually mean a part of a legal office or executive power office which is responsible for acceptance of declarations and solicitations and application of citizents.
Perhaps you may use a more appropriate local term of the same meaning.

Thanks, Tagir:
This is very helpful. I thought about ombudsman, but later on in the text I encountered "corregedoria", which, according to its description, more closely fills the role of an ombudsman.

Explanation:
Ouvidoria seria o departamento que serviria de ligação entre o usuário e a os departamentos da instituição que podem fazer/resolver algum assunto.

Dizia-se, nos EUA ombudsman, mas, agora, para ser politicamente correto, melhor dizer ombudsperson.

Não sei se ajudei. Espero que sim.

neutral  Cristiano Botafogo: "Ombudsperson" não seria a pessoa de dentro da instituição responsável por fazer uma crítica sobre a instituição? Ouvidoria implica um órgão cuja função principal é ouvir críticas de indivíduos ou agentes de fora da instituição. Thus, ombudsman seervices?
