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.

Strengthening Coahuila's internal control and risk management framework

This chapter discusses how Coahuila could strengthen its internal control and risk management framework to better safeguard integrity in public sector organisations and enable effective accountability. It highlights the value of ensuring a strategic approach to risk management, which Coahuila could cultivate by encouraging implementation of the existing framework through guidance, training, and capacity building. The chapter also focuses on the role of the internal audit function in providing reasonable assurance over risk management and internal control processes, stressing the need to gradually appoint internal control units in all ministries and to scale up professionalism and capacities to fulfil the investigative attributions that the Ministry for Audit and Accountability (SEFIR) will undertake within the Local Anti-corruption System with respect to non-serious offences of public officials.
