 |  October 29, 2018

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has published a report on the results of the implementation the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) of a series of recommendations for the improvement of tenders for medicines and supplies, promoting greater transparency and competition, while combating collusion.

IMSS is the largest social security system in Mexico, serving more than 80 million affiliates, and is the second largest public buyer of healthcare products in the country.

The report evaluates the status and implementation of the OECD’s 2011 recommendations, looking at the impact of changes made to public procurement practices within the IMSS and provides an action plan on how to implement further recommendations. The OECD confirmed the positive impact derived from the implementation of the recommendations issued in the previous edition of this report in 2011.
