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.

Ensuring clarity and minimising procurement risks in Petróleos Mexicanos through strong tender documents and model contracts

This chapter assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the template tendering documents and contracts used by PEMEX. It further explores the novelties of the new generic model contracts and whether PEMEX has been able to streamline the development process for solicitation documents and model contracts according the legislative reforms. Potential improvements to the template contracts are proposed to increase certainty and reduce risks in PEMEX procurement activities.
