Adapting to Change in the Oil Industry

image of Public Procurement Review of Mexico's PEMEX

This report on Mexico’s state-owned oil company PEMEX is part of a series of OECD reviews of Mexico’s procurement institutions. PEMEX’s procurement system was overhauled after Mexico’s 2013 Energy Reform opened up the sector to private participation, requiring PEMEX to compete in an open market. Using the 2015 Recommendation of the OECD Council on Public Procurement as a benchmark, the review assesses the effectiveness and integrity of PEMEX’s entire procurement system while identifying a series of actions for improvement. A state-of-the art procurement system can not only help PEMEX achieve value for money on a sustainable basis, but also support other social and environmental policy objectives in Mexico.

E-procurement: Implementing a strong information technology environment to support Petróleos Mexicanos' procurement activities

This chapter describes Petróleos Mexicanos’ (PEMEX’s) current information technology (IT) environment and assesses the recent development of the e-procurement system. The importance of a point-to-point platform that PEMEX is trying to achieve cannot be understated in terms of the potential benefits, i.e. more efficiency and standardisation of processes. While the company is going through a transitional period, so is the procurement system. PEMEX realises the potential of the system, but needs to fully commit to transforming it in order to reap the benefits, which include more efficient use of time and resources in a competitive environment.
