image of OECD Integrity Review of Mexico City

This report provides an assessment of Mexico City’s Local Anticorruption System (LACS). Based on international best practices and the OECD Recommendation on Public Integrity, the report reviews the institutional and co-ordination arrangements of the LACS; its regulatory framework; and the tools, programmes and processes necessary for a strategic approach to public integrity. It provides concrete suggestions for enhancing the design and implementation of the system, including cultivating a culture of integrity in government, the private sector and society; improving internal control and risk management; and upgrading public procurement policies to ensure value for money. If effective, the LACS has the potential not only to improve governance, deter corruption and boost citizen’s trust in Mexico City, but also to influence the integrity culture in the country as a whole.

Building a culture of integrity in Mexico City

This chapter reviews Mexico City’s policies and practices designed to promote a culture of integrity in government, and it considers the challenges surrounding the National and Local Anti-corruption Systems. In line with the principles of the OECD Recommendation of the Council on Public Integrity, it provides recommendations for action in the normative framework and organisational culture, so to ensure its implementation. The chapter assesses the required changes for promoting ethics and managing conflicts of interest in Mexico City. Furthermore, it examines whether the newly adopted human resources policies and mechanisms are effective. Proposed actions intend to mainstream the integrity policies, legislation, regulations and practices in effect. They also intend to guarantee public servants’ compliance with regulations and raise awareness among all actors who interact with the various government entities. Finally, it examines the existing mechanism for ensuring citizen and stakeholder participation in monitoring integrity and accountability within the public administration.
