Public Procurement Review of the State's Employees' Social Security and Social Services Institute in Mexico

How can citizens’ health and well-being be improved when public resources are limited? What practices allow hospitals and health clinics to get state of art medical equipment and medicine at the right price?

The OECD Procurement Review of the Mexican State’s Employees’ Social Security and Social Services Institute (ISSSTE) looks at the public entity responsible for providing medical and social services to Mexican civil servants. It provides a comprehensive assessment of its procurement function and how to improve it in order to enhance the overall efficiency and transparency of the organisation and the quality of the services it provides.

The review builds on the OECD Principles for Enhancing Integrity in Public Procurement, good practices of other health organisations as well as comparative data on public procurement in OECD countries.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter describes ISSSTE’s current IT environment and highlights how the absence of integrated IT systems covering the entire procurement cycle can hinder the efficiency and evidenced-based management of procurement activities. The slow uptake of eprocurement is also addressed, describing the need to build awareness and capacity, both within the organisation as well as within its supply base.
