How can citizens’ health and well-being be improved when public resources are limited? What practices allow hospitals and health clinics to get state of art medical equipment and medicine at the right price?

The OECD Procurement Review of the Mexican State’s Employees’ Social Security and Social Services Institute (ISSSTE) looks at the public entity responsible for providing medical and social services to Mexican civil servants. It provides a comprehensive assessment of its procurement function and how to improve it in order to enhance the overall efficiency and transparency of the organisation and the quality of the services it provides.

The review builds on the OECD Principles for Enhancing Integrity in Public Procurement, good practices of other health organisations as well as comparative data on public procurement in OECD countries.

Achieving better procurement results through sound sourcing methods

This chapter describes positive consolidation initiatives implemented by the State’s Employees’ Social Security and Social Services Institute’s (ISSSTE). Inversely, it also describes how the lack of communication and impact assessments limit these initiatives’ benefits and how consolidation opportunities remain unexploited. The level of competition achieved in ISSSTE’s procurement activities is also discussed, including the opportunity to reduce the use of exceptions to public tendering. Lastly, building on the experience of OECD countries, the chapter presents ISSSTE’s benefits and challenges of increasing the use of flexible contractual instruments and of diversifying the evaluation and selection methods used by the organisation.
