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 effective internal control and risk management in Petróleos Mexicanos' procurement activities

A robust internal control system, including risk management and independent internal audit functions, is the bedrock for improving governance and management systems, enhancing integrity, and strengthening accountability. This chapter highlights how a preemptive and risk-based approach is the best way for PEMEX to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and economy of operations while putting in place the proper controls and mitigating strategies to prevent, detect and respond to fraud and corruption schemes in the procurement cycle.
