Working With Vendors

Establishing long-term relationships with vendors is an important component of our supply chain strategy. By leveraging purchasing power across many clients and countries, negotiating long-term contracts with our key suppliers whenever possible, and sourcing pharmaceutical and other health commodities globally, we achieve the lowest possible cost for the products we buy.

PFSCM utilizes full and open competitive procedures to facilitate timely delivery of quality products and services at a reasonable cost. PFSCM selects its suppliers based on “best value” according to the following criteria, which may include, but are not limited to:

  • Lead time
  • Quality of products
  • Price of commodities
  • Customer service by the vendor
  • Vendor performance and supplier (financial and operational) long-term viability

PFSCM uses competitive bidding for procurement of commodities (except in extraordinary cases that prohibit the use of this method). These procedures are intended to minimize the complexity of the solicitation, the evaluation, and the source selection decision, leading to a “best value” selection. PFSCM follows the WHO Model for Quality Assurance (MQAS) for procurement agencies. Read more about our Quality Assurance program.

Vendors interested in becoming a supplier to PFSCM under one of its agreements should monitor PFSCM’s Request for Proposals page for contract opportunities. If you are interested in supplying PFSCM with products, please access PFSCM’s catalog to learn about the products we procure based on needs expressed by our clients.

ARIBA System

PFSCM is improving its RFQ process by using the web-based ARIBA System which incorporates an electronic quote submission process using standardized templates. Suppliers are invited to participate in “RFQ” events and these quotes are evaluated immediately after being received. The ARIBA System reduces our response time and streamlines the procurement process with our suppliers. Suppliers are encouraged to use this web-based system.

Vendors that have worked with PFSCM in the past, can self-register. If you have not worked with PFSCM, please contact PFSCM Helpdesk to acquire a user ID, set up your log in, and use the system.
