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.

Toward a coherent and comprehensive integrity system in Coahuila

This chapter examines the institutional arrangements for integrity in Coahuila and assesses whether they enable the functioning of a coherent and comprehensive integrity system in line with the principles of the OECD Recommendation on Public Integrity. First, it analyses the implications of the National Anti-corruption System and the reforms needed for the Local Anti-corruption System of Coahuila to embrace a whole-of-government approach and ensure effective vertical and horizontal mechanisms. Second, this chapter discusses the impact of politicians’ and managers’ commitment to enhancing public integrity and minimising corruption risks, and describes why their role is fundamental in ensuring effective implementation. Lastly, this chapter addresses the added value of building an inclusive public sector integrity system where civil society plays a central role and which involves different stakeholders from the whole-of-society.
