The OECD's Integrity Review of Mexico is one of the first peer reviews to apply the new 2017 Recommendation of the Council on Public Integrity. It assesses (i) the coherence and comprehensiveness of the evolving public integrity system; (ii) the extent to which Mexico’s new reforms cultivate a culture of integrity across the public sector; and (iii) the effectiveness of increasingly stringent accountability mechanisms. In addition, the Review includes a sectoral focus on public procurement, one of the largest areas of government spending in the country and is considered a high-risk government activity for fraud and corruption. The Review provides several proposals for strengthening institutional arrangements and improving vertical and horizontal co-ordination, closing remaining gaps in various existing legal/policy frameworks, instilling integrity values and ensuring the sustainability of reforms.

Curbing corruption for more inclusive growth and prosperity in Mexico

Mexico’s new anti-corruption reforms, if implemented effectively, can contribute to addressing many of the key social and economic challenges facing the country today. Indeed, greater integrity, transparency and accountability are all inextricably linked with better economic performance, better government performance, and greater well-being and prosperity for society as a whole. The following chapter highlights these key linkages in order to underscore the timeliness and relevance of the NACS in curbing corruption and helping achieve these important goals in Mexico. It examines, for instance, how the NACS can build trust in government to support its ambitious reform agenda, support a more inclusive and productive economy, and tackle the security challenge facing many regions. It concludes with a description of the Integrity Review’s analytical framework which forms the foundation for the OECD’s main findings and recommendations for improvement.
