OECD Integrity Review of Coahuila, Mexico

Restoring Trust through an Integrity System

image of OECD Integrity Review of Coahuila, Mexico

This report provides recommendations to leverage the full potential of Coahuila’s Local Anti-corruption System by identifying weaknesses and areas for improvement. It provides a comprehensive assessment of the state’s integrity system, analyses efforts made to build a culture of integrity in the state public administration, as well as the extent to which Coahuila’s internal control and transparency mechanisms enable effective accountability. Furthermore, the Review focuses on an activity prone to corruption, public procurement. In particular, the report emphasises the risk of implementation gaps, which will need to be addressed to result in real impact for the economy and society. If effective, Coahuila’s Local Anti-corruption System has the potential to substantially transform the anti-corruption architecture of the State Government.

Executive summary

The northern Mexican state of Coahuila de Zaragoza is in the process of aligning its legislative framework with the national reforms that established the National Anti-corruption System (NACS). In particular, the constitutional reform establishing the NACS requires federal states to establish their own anti-corruption systems in accordance with the model defined for the federal level in July 2016. This process is not only a unique opportunity for Coahuila to upgrade its integrity system, but also to incorporate good international practices and respond to declining trust in government. This Review provides analysis and proposals to support Coahuila in seizing such an opportunity, based on the OECD Recommendation on Public Integrity as well as best practices.
