Consultant on Tender and Supply Chain Management

Chemonics International seeks a short-term consultant on tender and supply chain management (based in Hanoi, Vietnam) to support the Global Health Supply Chain Program - Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project. The purpose of the GHSC-PSM project is to ensure uninterrupted supplies of health commodities in support of USG-funded public health initiatives around the world.

In Vietnam, antiretroviral (ARV) medicines for the HIV/AIDS program are supplied by three different sources including the National Targeted Program, PEPFAR, and Global Fund.

To facilitate the Vietnam Social Security/North regional verification and Multi-line payment Center (the Center) in the ARV centralized procurement process and supply management, GHSC-PSM project seeks a short-term Local Consultant on Tender and Supply Management to provide technical support to the Tender Management Department of the Center in developing the tender and procurement, supply and distribution management procedures, as well as to liaise with relevant bodies including VSS, Vietnam Administration of AIDS Control (VAAC), and related MOH departments to implement ARV centralized procurement and supply management.
