This report on Mexico’s state-owned oil company PEMEX is part of a series of OECD
reviews of Mexico’s procurement institutions. PEMEX’s procurement system was overhauled
after Mexico’s 2013 Energy Reform opened up the sector to private participation, requiring
PEMEX to compete in an open market. Using the 2015 Recommendation of the OECD Council
on Public Procurement as a benchmark, the review assesses the effectiveness and integrity
of PEMEX’s entire procurement system while identifying a series of actions for improvement.
A state-of-the art procurement system can not only help PEMEX achieve value for money
on a sustainable basis, but also support other social and environmental policy objectives
