CoST Forging Links with Mexico

CoST recently participated in a conference on Integrity in Public Procurement, co-organised by the Mexican Department of Public Administration, World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank. Speaking after the event CoST Chairman Christiaan Poortman said: “Mexico has made great strides in developing its public procurement system. It maintains a comprehensive database on all public projects, including infrastructure, which it uses for purposes of cost benchmarking and standard setting. The officials I met were enthusiastic about CoST and we agreed to continue the dialogue established during this trip.”
