  1. PROCUREMENT SUPPORT SERVICE WHO/UNICEF Technical Briefing Seminar on Essential Medicines Policies, October 31st -November 4th 2011 Mariatou Tala Jallow, Pharmaceutical Management Unit

  2. PRESENTATION OUTLINE • Procurement Support - Voluntary Pooled Procurement (VPP) and Capacity Building Services (CBS) • Why Global Fund is providing this service • How the services operates • Achievements and challenges • How to access the service

  3. Use of the Global Fund Grant Funding 37% percent of funds are used for medicines and health products procurement

  4. Challenges / Risks linked with PSM activities

  5. Pharmaceuticals & Health Products Management PSM Challenges affect Grant Implementation • Challenges in Procurement and Supply Management (PSM) impacts on: • Grant negotiation – PSM Plan approval • Grant implementation – Procurement plan/ process • Disbursement – PSM plan approval; Condition Precedents; Progress update on PSM activities • Grant Performance – meeting targets; Scaling up • Contributes to delays in procurement and stock-outs

  6. Measures to mitigate PSM risks / address challenges • Investments on Pharmaceutical Systems Strengthening • Strengthening of in-country processes / systems (Long Term Strategy): • Quantification / procurement planning • Storage / Distribution Chain • Management Information Systems • Quality Assurance system • Out-sourcing / Use of procurement/supply chain agents (Short Term Strategy) • Voluntary Pooled Procurement / Capacity Building Services

  7. VPP contributing to improving grant performance, mitigating risk & influencing market dynamics National procurement & supply systems • Capacity building & supply chain management assistance (CBS) Global Fund Board Decisions (2007 & 2011) • Improve grant performance • Identify challenges during grant negotiation • Mitigate risks during grant implementation • Strengthen management of grants and national procurement and supply chain systems Participating Principal Recipients Pooled procurement service (VPP) Non-core health products • Support implementation of the disease program • Complete package of essential health products (prevention, diagnosis & treatment) Core health products (ARVs, ACTs, LLINs, rapid diagnostics for HIV & malaria) • Support implementation of the disease program • Leverage the Global Fund’s purchasing power • Improve price, quality, supply & sustainability • Address global supply challenges

  9. VPP Procurement Process Procurement Request Procurement Request Principal Recipient VPP PSA Price Quotation VPP: Oversight PR Approval VPP: Direct Disbursement PSA Confirms Order to Supplier PR Acknowledgement of goods receipt Delivery Final Invoice and reconciliation PQR Data Entry by PSA on PR’s behalf

  10. VPP Participation:46 Countries 85 Grants • Participation is defined as an order being confirmed during applicable period. Disbursement or delivery may occur in subsequent period. • Some countries/grants may be registered and not confirm/place an order during applicable period • Based on data from PFSCM Client center and PSI status report Reporting Period 2009 - Jun’ 11

  11. VPP Confirmed Orders • Based on data from PFSCM Client center and PSI status report. Data includes only confirmed orders by Principal Recipient (PR) • A PR's Order is divided into several “Price Quotes (Orders)” – each representing a different product category (e.g. ARVs, ACTs, Tests, Lab, Non Core Drugs etc.) • Tests include HIV and malaria rapid tests and other diagnostic tests/reagents. Non Core Drugs Include all Non-ARV and Non-ACT medicines Reporting Period 2009 - Sep’ 11

  12. Top Countries • Based on data from PFSCM Client center and PSI status report. Data includes only confirmed orders by Principal Recipient (PR) • A PR's Order is divided into several “Price Quotes (Orders)” – each representing a different product category (e.g. ARVs, ACTs, Tests, Lab, Non Core Drugs etc.) • Tests include HIV and malaria rapid tests and other diagnostic tests/reagents. Non Core Drugs Include all Non-ARV and Non-ACT medicines Reporting Period 2009 - Jun’ 11

  13. Procurement Cycle (Days)* • Based on data from PFSCM Client center and PSI status report. Data includes only confirmed orders by Principal Recipient (PR) • A PR's Order is divided into several “Price Quotes (Orders)” – each representing a different product category (e.g. ARVs, ACTs, Tests, Lab, Non Core Drugs etc.) • Tests include HIV and malaria rapid tests and other diagnostic tests/reagents. Non Core Drugs Include all Non-ARV and Non-ACT medicines *Time from Request for quotes to planned/actual delivery date Reporting Period 2009 - Sep’ 11

  14. VPP Challenges • Unrealistic expectations, including delivery times • Emergency/Late orders with unrealistic timelines • Limited freight options (flights, logistics, storage) • Conditions precedent on grant disbursement / Disbursement delays • Limited demand aggregation • Irregular and unpredictable participation • grant architecture; individual PSM plans and non-coordinated procurement cycles; Fragmented orders • A high proportion of emergency procurements (40%) and inadequate procurements planning • Custom clearance delays • Long list of Non core items with small quantities

  15. In-Country PSM Capacity • Pharmaceutical Systems Strengthening • Holistic approach, with emphasis on investments on Pharmaceutical Systems • Strengthening Procurement and Supply Chain Management Systems • Quantification / forecasting; • Procurement planning • Logistics management (storage, inventory control, transportation, distribution and management information systems) • Quality assurance activities • National / Central Medical Stores and its affiliates 5th MDC Meeting Geneva, 6-7 October 2011

  16. Systematic Capacity Building Process

  17. Capacity Building Services (CBS) • Options • Service providers – solicited through competitive process and contracted on a case by case basis • Partners (regional /global / in-country) – through collaborative process where feasible • Secretariat can be requested to provide support by facilitating the process (scope of work, selection process and work plan with deliverables) • Alternatively it is done at country level 5th MDC Meeting Geneva, 6-7 October 2011

  18. CBS/ SCMA: Mechanism and Process Identifying needs • PRs identify CBS/SCMA needs (LFA assessments / reports of partners etc) Contracting CBS / SCMA • PRs choose from available services • PRs manage implementation of service contracted • Global Fund supports and monitors deliverables Operational Model Financing • PR pays for service from grant • Global Fund Direct Payment to service providers at request of PRs

  19. CBS/SCMA update CBS/Supply Chain Management Assistance (SCMA) – currently ongoing • Nigeria, Gambia, Liberia, Malawi; Djibouti; Guinea Bissau, Zambia; Cameroun • Technical support is country specific to address PSM challenges during grant negotiation and signing, Facilitate resolution of Conditions Precedents (CP) and improving PSM during grant implementation • Ranges from short term to long term (weeks – months) • Technical Support activities - Procurement, Quantification, QA, storage, distribution, transportation, LMIS, PSM unit strengthening, LLIN mass campaign

  20. Accessing VPP and CBS
