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.

Ensuring integrity throughout ISSSTE's procurement cycle

This chapter highlights how public procurement is particularly at risk for corruption in the pharmaceutical and health care sector. It describes the efforts made by Mexico and the State’s Employees’ Social Security and Social Services Institute (ISSSTE) to fight corruption and wrongdoing in procurement. The chapter also discusses the need for ISSSTE to complement its current discipline-based management of integrity risks with a value-based strategy. Various tools and mechanisms to strengthen detection, monitoring and management of corruption (e.g. red flags, data mining and enhanced whistleblowers’ protection) in its procurement and distribution activities are also provided for ISSSTE’s consideration.
