Building a coherent and comprehensive public integrity system in Nuevo León

This chapter considers the framework of Nuevo León’s public integrity system and how well it is aligned with the first pillar of the OECD Recommendation of the Council on Public Integrity on building a coherent and comprehensive public integrity system. Nuevo León’s Local Anti-corruption System offers an invaluable opportunity to encourage coherence and consistency among the different policies, measures and initiatives of the relevant actors, both in Nuevo León, and in the country as a whole. The chapter notes that Nuevo León has based its integrity system on the model established at the federal level, but also suggests that further efforts are needed to engage all relevant actors in the state – including municipalities. In addition, at the level of government entities, integrity policies and practices need to be implemented and mainstreamed. Furthermore, political and managerial leadership is needed to model public integrity and reduce corruption by ensuring sustained support for the system and its mechanisms for citizen participation.
