Increasing efficiency and fairness in the solicitation and contract award process in Nuevo León

This chapter provides an overview of the main procurement methods applied in the state of Nuevo León and identifies actions to drive efficiency throughout the public procurement cycle. This includes measures for market analysis, and the adoption of tools like framework agreements and consolidated purchases. While procurement committees already play a central role in Nuevo León, the OECD recommends that the government merge and streamline certain committees. In this chapter, measures are suggested for how these committees can enhance their roles, and in so doing, improve the effectiveness of the procurement process. Finally, this chapter examines how the State Government of Nuevo León (SGNL) can broaden its approach to the application award criteria by applying points and percentages for public tenders.
