OVERVIEW This RFP sets out to recruit a professional experienced in supply chain management, project management, change management, and with strong client communications skills to take on the role of Program Manager (PM) for the Supply Chain transformation in Democratic Republic of Congo. This role will report to the Office of the director of PNAM (Programme National d’Approvisionnement des Médicaments essentiels, the National Supply Chain Program for Essential Medicines), a programme of the Ministry of Health, based in the capital Kinshasa. The PM will perform three roles: • The PM supports the project manager in charge of delivering the TGF-supported project for deploying a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and Urban Direct Delivery (UDD) distribution model in the Kinshasa area, and any future projects that TGF may seek to execute in DRC • The PM reports to the director of PNAM and assists him in monitoring the progress of the supply chain transformation as outlined in the PNAM PAO, including TGF supported projects • The PM is TGF’s principal point-of-contact for progress reports on both of the above If the scope of the task demands, the Program Manager can propose to expand the role into a semi-permanent Program Management Office (PMO). The role will be for an initial 12 months with a likely extension to 24 months. The Global Fund, together with the DRC government and Ministry of Health (MoH), invites proposals for the above role of Program Manager at the DRC Ministry of Health Supply Chain Program. This position is currently open and available, and a key component of this RFP is for an individual, to be identified, agreed and available to start as soon as possible, on a date to be agreed with The Global Fund. The Global Fund is looking for an individual that can be an individual consultant or a consultant as part of an organization. In case an organization applies and pushes forward a consultant, the organization must detail the exact value and/or support it will bring to the appointed candidate and ultimately to the project. Additionally, the added value cost must be included in the individual’s rate. II. CONTEXT In late 2017, as part of the Global Fund Supply Chain Diagnostics Initiative, an in-country situation analysis of the public health supply chain in Kinshasa and Kongo Central provinces was carried out. The recruited firm underlined issues around the availability, quality and affordability of medicines, finding many cases of extended stock-outs or improper storage of essential medicine and pharmaceutical goods being sold at prices higher than those of private sector suppliers. The final report recommended eight key projects with the potential to significantly improve the maturity and capability of the medical supply chain and thereby have a positive impact on the 5 general patient experience. This plan was presented and accepted by the DRC MoH and representatives of active partners and donors in that country. The details of this plan are available in Annex 1. The project for implementing and operating an Urban Direct Delivery (UDD) distribution model (including a local and potentially expendable VMI system), were accepted in late 2018 for implementation in the short term. TGF is currently recruiting a team of experts via an RFP to commence work on this project. The UDD project manager will report to the PM, who will ensure coordination between this project and those of other donors, and the plans of PNAM. In late 2018 TGF deployed a team of experts to the PNAM office to support the articulation of its annual operational plan, the Plan d’Activites Operationel (PAO). The PNAM PAO is a comprehensive overview of all supply chain related improvement activities planned in 2019 which fell under PNAM’s responsibilities. These activities are executed throughout every part of DRC and support by many international donors. It was also agreed that the supply chain transformation Program Manager should take on the role of “control tower” to coordinate the planning
