Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), coverage of the government procurement chapter is based on positive lists of government entities and enterprises for each NAFTA Party (United States, Canada and Mexico). The lists for each Party are contained in its Schedules to Annex 1001.1a-1 (Federal Government Entities) and Annex 1001.1a-2 (Government Enterprises) of the NAFTA Chapter on Government Procurement. The Chapter provides a process for rectifications and modifications of the Schedules. In 2004, Mexico modified its Schedules to reflect changes in its government structure. The Parties have approved the changes to Mexico's federal government entities and government enterprises schedules. Mexico published its revised Schedules in the Diario Oficial de la Federaci[oacute]n de M[eacute]xico in February 2005. The revised Mexican Schedules are set out below.
