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.

Mexico's National Anti-corruption System: Advancing a more coherent and comprehensive public integrity system

This chapter examines the coherence and comprehensiveness of Mexico’s evolving public integrity system. In line with the principles of the OECD 2017 Recommendation on Public Integrity, it examines the recently reformed institutional arrangements for national and local anti-corruption systems with a view to further strengthening co-ordination and supporting the implementation of action plan initiatives at national and subnational levels. The chapter provides recommendations on supporting implementation through stronger monitoring and capacity building. Finally, the extent to which non-governmental stakeholders have been included is discussed. The chapter discusses how new reforms could be better mainstreamed across the whole of government, better served by the inclusion of additional stakeholders to reach target groups such as the private sector, and better supported by stronger senior leadership and resources to ensure effective implementation.
