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.

Managing for results: Implementing an organisational procurement strategy and evidence-based performance management in ISSSTE

This chapter identifies how the procurement’s strategic role could be better recognised in the State’s Employees’ Social Security and Social Services Institute (ISSSTE) and shows the lack of coherence in its procurement system, partly due to the absence of an organisational procurement plan. It also describes how public procurement is used by the Mexican federal government and ISSSTE to foster socio-economic objectives, particularly to support the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises. Finally, the chapter demonstrates how lack of data and of an adequate performance management system hinders evidenced-based decision-making and effective management of ISSSTE’s procurement function.
