Decree Amending Provisions of the Public Sector Procurement, Leasing and Services Law

On July 2, 2008, a Decree Amending and Adding various Provisions to the Public Sector Procurement, Leasing and Services Law was published in the DOF. The new provisions incorporate “subsequent offers of discount” (oferta subsecuente de descuento) into the Law, which is used in public bidding by bidders who carry out one or more subsequent discounts to improve the prices they initially offered. However, the possibility of offering a subsequent discount must be specifically contemplated in the original bidding documents issued by Mexican federal agencies and offices, as it is not possible to change the specifications or characteristics originally contained in a technical proposal, such as an offer of discount mentioned above. Based on the new reform, Mexico’s federal agencies will be able to acquire goods and services in a more economical manner.
