This page contains information on the work of the OECD and Mexico in the area of Competition Law and Policy.
Mexico has partnered with the OECD to improve its procurement practices and step up its fight against bid rigging. In January 2011, Mexico's Social Security Department became the first public agency in Mexico (and in the world) to formally commit to adopt and implement the OECD Competition Committee’s Guidelines for Fighting Bid Rigging in Public Procurement.
This report documents procurement regulations and practices in Mexico's State's Employees' Social Security and Social Services Institute(ISSSTE) and makes policy recommendations in key procurement areas.
This multi-year project aims to improve the competitiveness of the Mexican economy by reforming and modifying the regulatory and institutional framework to support higher levels of investment, employment and growth.
Informality has important implications for productivity, economic growth, and the inequality of income. In recent years, the extent of informal employment has increased in many of Mexico's states, though highly heterogeneously.
This report documents procurement regulations and practices in the State of Mexico and makes policy recommendations in key procurement areas.
This OECD report analyses the existing legal framework of public procurement in Mexico, lists areas in current laws and regulations which restrict the scope of action for the Mexican Institute of Social Services and other public agencies and their ability to obtain the best value from their purchases, and issues over 20 recommendations in specific areas on how to improve procurement procedures to avoid collusion amongst suppliers.
Improvements in the macroeconomic policy framework over the past two decades and prudent regulation of the financial system have contributed to reduce output volatility in Mexico relative to other OECD countries.
Bid rigging costs governments and taxpayers billions of dollars every year. In 2011, the OECD will for the first time directly assist a member country, Mexico, as it implements tighter public procurement processes.
While Mexico’s growth performance has gradually improved over the past decades, its convergence toward OECD countries has been less rapid than in several other emerging markets.
