This chapter provides an overview on how policy analysis is done in Constitutional Autonomous Agencies (CAAs) in Mexico, with a particular focus on two of them: the Instituto Nacional de Evaluacion para la Educacion (INEE, or National Institute of Evaluation for Education); and the Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (IFT, or Federal Telecommunications Institute). The CAAs represent a new kind of public agency for the Mexican politico-administrative system. From an international perspective, CAAs are similar to non-majoritarian institutions existing in other jurisdictions: they are formally independent; their heads are neither elected nor hierarchically accountable to the executive power; and their internal life is not tied to political cycles. The chapter describes the legal background and organizational features of both INEE and IFT; analyses how these institutions gather information, assess policy options, and make decisions; and underlines the main challenges that both institutions are currently facing for developing their policy analytical capacities and performing their broader policy tasks.

Keywords:   autonomous agencies, non-majoritarian institutions, policy capacity, INEE, IFT, regulation, education policy, telecommunications policy
