The 2001 joint World Bank- International Monetary Fund (IMF) Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) that took place in 2001 identified a number of problems related to the operation of DBs in Mexico. Some DBs had unclear mandates or did not live up to their mandates with their activities overlapping among themselves or with the activities of commercial banks. Some of them were performing quasi-fiscal activities outside the scope of the budget process, and all of them were loss making even after several rounds of recapitalization. Their operation was often inefficient with high costs, too many employees, and weak internal controls. Fiscal subsidies involved in their operations were not well targeted and were channeled in a non-transparent manner.
