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.

Revising Petróleos Mexicanos' pre-solicitation activities for a stronger procurement function

This chapter assesses the alignment of Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) pre-solicitation activities with the mandate of its procurement directorate, which is maximising value creation. Pre-tendering activities support and often shape how procurement operations are carried out and have the potential to transform the positioning of the PEMEX procurement unit, from an intermediary to a strategic enabler. This chapter suggests actions in the collection and analysis of users’ procurement needs and strategic interactions with suppliers to further reinforce the competitiveness of PEMEX procurement processes and their overall attractiveness.
