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.

Procurement data and performance management systems: Towards evidence-based decision making in Petróleos Mexicanos' public procurement

This chapter provides an overview of the evaluation process of the procurement function and the indicators being considered in the evaluation methodology, although its design is still incomplete. An adequate monitoring of supplier performance is also critical to facilitate the effectiveness of procurement strategies, allowing for the anticipation, identification, and correction of failures before relationships with suppliers suffer and before the optimal use of resources is jeopardised. This chapter analyses the strategies and methodologies used by Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) to monitor the performance of its suppliers and suggests specific actions to use previous performance as an award criterion. Finally, this chapter puts forward proposals for action in order to upgrade the evaluation of PEMEX’s procurement function and make the assessment and monitoring of suppliers’ performance more systematic.
