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.

Fostering effective risk-based internal control in ISSSTE's procurement activities

This chapter assesses the internal control structure and division of responsibility relating to public procurement within the State’s Employees’ Social Security and Social Services Institute (ISSSTE). It also indicates how the dependence of ISSSTE on audit activities of the Internal Control Offices of the Ministry of Public Administration, and the limited communication between them, hinder improvements that could be made to the procurement function and the implementation of risk-based management. Finally, it describes the risk management system in place and assesses the strengths and shortcomings of recently implemented changes.
