The Mexican Federal Government has started the National Potable Water Supply and Sanitation Program. In the latter part of 1991, there will be a change concerning acceptance of projects to be carried out within this Program. Decentralized operating systems all over the country will be the sole executors of the projects. These, in turn, will be supported by the National Water Commission, through the consolidation and financial strategies of the Program. A description of these strategies is given in the paper, and roles and duties of the operating systems within them is established.
