Effective Delivery of Large Infrastructure Projects

The Case of the New International Airport of Mexico City

image of Effective Delivery of Large Infrastructure Projects

The New International Airport of Mexico City (NAICM) should position Mexico as a regional hub and improve its competitiveness. It is scheduled to be operational in 2020 in answer to the pressing need for the expansion of the city's airport capabilities. The airport, whose construction is managed by a state-owned entity (GACM), is currently the largest Mexican infrastructure project.

A project of this magnitude requires tailored strategic frameworks and actions in several policy areas. Building on international experience, this report provides a comprehensive assessment, and analysis and recommendations in four key dimensions contributing to the effective delivery of large infrastructure projects: governance, procurement, integrity and communication.

Enhancing the integrity and transparency of the procurement process in the NAICM project

World experience has shown that infrastructure projects are particularly prone to corruption due in part to the large sums involved and the complexity of the sector. The construction of the new airport of Mexico is not exempt from this risk, yet no comprehensive strategy has been put in place by Mexico to prevent corruption in the construction of the airport.
