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.

Public procurement in Coahuila: ensuring integrity and value for money

In line with the OECD Recommendation of the Council on Public Procurement, the present chapter assesses whether Coahuila has developed and implemented effective general standards for public procurement procedures and procurement-specific risk management tools in order to preserve integrity in this activity. Specifically, the chapter looks at newly-developed initiatives such as the Code of Conduct and the Conflict-of-Interest Manifest for suppliers. It then describes the actions undertaken so far to promote a culture of integrity among public procurement officials, potential suppliers, and civil society. It also evaluates how external stakeholders are involved in the public procurement system with a view to increase its transparency and integrity. Lastly, the chapter analyses levels of transparency of public procurement processes and the application of e-procurement solutions.
