Normativity applicable to the NAS and on anti-corruption matters
On May 27, 2015, the Decreet reforming and adding various provisions of the Political Constitution on anticorruption matters was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation. Among the reforms, the creation of the National Anticorruption System stands out; also the reform of the system for determining the responsibilities of public servants and the inclusion of sanctions against individuals involved in acts of corruption; as well as, the one that expands and strengthens the powers of control of the Superior Audit of the Federation, among others. The foregoing is reflected in the creation and reform of the following standards.
Constitutional reform on anti-corruption matters
Efforts to strengthen a normative framework for the prevention, detection, investigation, and sanction of acts of corruption, have precedent in the international commitments that Mexico has signed with multilateral organizations, which are bound to comply, and which are the following:
Convention to combat the bribery of foreign public servants in international commercial transactions of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).Note: The Spanish version is available in an unofficial translation, which does not include the update in the section on the Guidelines for multinational companies, on bribery, bribery, and extortion, in May 2011.

Structure of the National Anticorruption System
The National Anticorruption System (NAS) is the result of the participation and commitment of the Mexican State, organized civil society and the country’s academic institutions in the fight against corruption. The NAS is an instance of coordination between authorities of the three levels of government and civil society that unite efforts to prevent, detect and punish acts of corruption, as well as to improve the control and exercise of public resources.
The National Anticorruption System is composed of four instances (Art. 7, General Law of the National Anticorruption System), each one integrated by representatives of different entities:
1. The Coordinating Committee of the National Anticorruption System,
2. The Citizen Participation Committee,
3. The Steering Committee of the National Audit System and
4. Local Anticorruption Systems.
1. The function of the Coordinating Committee is to be the body responsible for establishing coordination mechanisms among the members of the National Anticorruption System, as well as for designing, promoting and evaluating public policies to combat corruption. Among the tasks of the Coordinating Committee are: to implement the mechanisms, bases and principles of coordination with the authorities of control, control and prevention of administrative faults and acts of corruption; the establishment of coordination mechanisms with the Local Anticorruption Systems; and participate in the mechanisms of international cooperation to combat corruption, among others.
The Coordinating Committee of the National Anticorruption System has the Executive Secretariat, which serves as a technical support body and is responsible for providing the necessary supplies for the performance of its functions. It is headquartered in Mexico City and has an operational structure to carry out its attributions, objectives, and purposes.
2. The Citizen Participation Committee aims to link with social and academic organizations related to the matters of the National Anticorruption System. It is composed of five members and some of its main functions consist of giving opinions and making proposals on national politics and integral policies; propose to the Coordinating Committee the projects of coordination bases between the institutions for the control of public resources, the improvement projects to the instruments of the National Digital Platform, as well as the mechanisms for society to participate in the prevention and reporting of acts of corruption, among others.
3. The Governing Committee of the National Audit System is made up of the Superior Audit Office of the Federation, the Ministry of Public Administration, and seven rotating members from among the local supervisory bodies, and the secretariats or counterparts in charge of the internal control in the states. It is chaired in a dual manner by the Superior Auditor of the Federation and the Ministry of Public Administration, or by the representatives who respectively designate for this position. The Governing Committee is responsible for designing, approving and promoting comprehensive policies on oversight; implement the coordination mechanisms among all members of the System; implement the supply, exchange, systematization and updating mechanisms of the information that in the matter of control and control of public resources generate the competent institutions in the matter.
4. The Local Anticorruption Systems are established by each federative entity with the purpose of coordinating the competent local authorities in the prevention, detection, investigation, and sanction of administrative responsibilities and acts of corruption. So that in total there are 32 state systems and each of these systems has instances made up of state public entities, as well as their secondary legislation in the matter, which must be in harmony and equivalence with those of the National Anticorruption System.

The National Anticorruption System provides citizen participation through the constitution of the Citizen Participation Committee (CPC), which is integrated, in total, by 5 citizens who were elected according to the established legal process.
The objectives of the CPC are to collaborate in the fulfillment of the objectives of the Coordinating Committee, as well as to be the instance of connection with the social and academic organizations related to the matters of the National Anticorruption System.
Consult more information about the Citizen Participation Committee on its website here and in the Structure section.
Being a coordination mechanism in which different entities participate, the National Anticorruption System (NAS) does not have a budget assigned for its operation.
However, the Budget of Expenditures of the Federation for the fiscal year 2018, in order to allocate resources to carry out actions in anticorruption matters, has a Transversal Annex on Anticorruption matter called “Annex 20. Resources for the prevention, detection, and sanction of faults administrative and acts of corruption, as well as for the control and control of public resources (pesos)”
This annex implies that the entities that are part of the SNA, receive by 2018 a proportion of their budget that will be identifiable and dedicated to the performance of their functions within the System. In other cases, it is not an additional budget, but rather the allocated budget is expected to allocate the resources established in the cross-sectional budget for the purposes of the Anticorruption subject.
The transversal annexes are annexes of the Budget where Budgetary Programs, components of these and/or Responsible Units concur, whose resources are allocated to works, actions and services linked to the development of various sectors, such as the prevention, detection and sanction of administrative failures and acts of corruption, as well as for the control and control of public resources.
This implies that the total budget received by the entities is expected to be allocated to the prevention, detection, and sanction of administrative faults and corruption, as well as for the control and monitoring of public resources, so that it clearly establishes what sum of resources of public expenditure is expected to be dedicated to this end. For more information, you can consult the explanatory page of the Project of the transversal annex on anticorruption matters here.
