Executive summary

This review of public procurement in Nuevo León is the first OECD Public Procurement Review conducted at the subnational level in any OECD country or non-member economy. This review thoroughly describes the role public procurement can play in enhancing good governance and public administration at the subnational level. This is important, because, on average, two-thirds of OECD spending related to public procurement occurs at this level.
