Background & Context

The Global Fund 2017-2022 Strategy, entitled 'Investing to End Epidemics', comprises of four strategic objectives:

1) Maximize impact against HIV, TB and Malaria;

2) Build resilient and sustainable systems for health;

3) Mobilize increased resources; and

4) Protect and promote human rights and gender equality.

The Strategic Objective 2 is to 'Build resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH)' with an operational objective to 'Strengthen global and in-country procurement and supply chain systems'. The Strategy notes that 'approximately 40% of Global Fund support going to countries for their HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and RSSH programs will be used for procurement and supply-chain management of health products'. And, 'In-country supply chains for many drugs and health products currently face end-toend challenges, including issues related to forecasting and quantification, storage and inventory management, distribution, quality assurance, and information management and reporting'. The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) in 2017 noted that many in-country supply chain management systems remained weak and required significant investments to deal with the increasing throughput of medicines.

To respond to the emerging focus, the Global Fund created the Supply Chain department with the mandate to strengthen in-country supply chain systems in 2016. The Procurement and Supply Management (PSM) Strategic Initiatives (SIs) were initiated in 2017, and the focus was set to strengthening transformations of in-country supply chain health systems. Sixteen (16) priority countries were identified to concentrate efforts and a further two were subsequently added. Performance measures (product on-shelf availability, inventory and costs) were selected to monitor the impact of supply chain investments. The product on-shelf availability of the monitored countries has shown improving trends for key tracer health products since 2017 and as of the end of 2019 has demonstrated an improvement from 79% to 89%.

In 2019, the Global Fund and other funding agencies including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Department for International Development (DFID), Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID), developed a collaborative approach to supply chain strengthening. The focus areas for the partner collaboration included: coordinated procurement, sustainable governance, planning innovation, supply chain segmentation, and private sector engagement. These focus areas have guided setting priorities of the PSM SIs for the 2021-2023 implementation period. (Attachment A-1: PSM-SI 2021-2023)

In October 2019, the Global Fund achieved an unprecedented level of global solidarity by securing pledges of USD 14.02 billion at the Sixth Replenishment Conference, the largest amount ever raised for a multilateral health organization and an increase of 15 percent compared with the previous three-year period. To maximize the impact of the supply chain in the 2021-2023 implementation period, the Global Fund is urged to increase the capacity of SCTA supports and enhance efficiency, effectiveness and speed of the in-country supply chain transformations by the countries and Global Fund's Principal Recipients.

Objective In order to accelerate strengthening in-country supply chain systems, the Global Fund is launching this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Supply Chain Technical Assistance (SCTA) related to transformations of in-country supply chain systems.

This RFP aims to establish a pool of SCTA consultants (the SCTA pool), which may consist of consulting firms, universities, institutions and/or individual experts who are qualified based on proven records of technical expertise, in-country experience, and delivered results. The SCTA pool will enable the countries and Global Fund Principal Recipients to have easier, quicker and better access to the reliable SCTA supports when needed.

Focus Areas in 2021 - 2023 This RFP will especially focus on the four critical SCTA supports required in the 2021 – 2023 implementation period:

1) sustainable supply chain governance,

2) planning innovation (data driven supply chain operations),

3) supply chain segmentation (people-centric supply chain designs), and

4) private sector engagement.
