Ensuring the integrity of public procurement processes in Nuevo León

This chapter assesses the system for ensuring the integrity of public procurement processes in Nuevo León against the 2015 OECD Recommendation on Public Procurement and the 2017 OECD Recommendation on Public Integrity. The chapter analyses the state’s existing integrity policies and legal framework to establish how effective they are at reducing the risk of corruption during the public procurement cycle. Furthermore, the chapter recommends measures to enhance integrity rules, such as a code of ethics, use of declarations and a whistle-blower programme. The chapter discusses measures to ensure accountability and control with regards to the sanctioning of suppliers. It also underlines the importance of actively engaging the private sector and civil society. Finally, the chapter looks at the experiences of other OECD countries in order to illustrate potential improvements Nuevo León could make to its integrity framework.
