Implementing electronic mechanisms to support Nuevo León's procurement system

This chapter discusses information technology (IT) tools and the public procurement system of the State Government of Nuevo León (SGNL). It focuses specifically on the availability of these tools, and how they can be utilised by Nuevo León’s public procurement system. The chapter analyses the degree of implementation of IT services, and their use in public procurement activities as compared to the recommendations set by the 2015 OECD Recommendation on Public Procurement. Furthermore, the chapter assesses how the use of an e-procurement system in the SGNL is bringing it closer to achieving some of the major objectives of public procurement, such as transparency and efficiency. Finally, the chapter addresses how the SGNL could further reap the benefits of the e-procurement system as well as data and information that could be collected through IT systems in order to improve the functioning of the public procurement system overall.
