This report presents the findings and recommendations of the OECD review of Mexico’s national auditing system, with a focus on the Auditoria Superior de la Federación (ASF), the supreme audit institution. Reforms in Mexico have revamped the country’s institutional architecture and created several systems for strengthening accountability, integrity and transparency. The report highlights strategic considerations for the national auditing system and the ASF, examines the national and subnational dimensions of auditing in Mexico, and suggests ways for the ASF to enhance the impact and relevance of its work.

Executive summary

In May 2015, the Mexican Congress passed a series of governance reforms to enhance public sector accountability, integrity and transparency. These measures, which in some cases involved reforms to the country’s Constitution, re-drew the national institutional map to advance these principles through the creation of the National Anti- Corruption System and the National Transparency System. The reforms also provide a legislative foundation for the National Auditing System (Sistema Nacional de Fiscalización, or SNF) to contribute to good governance and accountability in Mexico.
