Work With Us

Establishing long-term relationships with suppliers 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 supplier and its representatives
  • Maintenance and service agreements
  • Product training
  • Supplier performance and supplier (financial and operational) long-term viability
  • Compliance with World Health Organization or Stringent Regulatory Authority standards.
  • Compliance with the PFSCM Code of Conduct for Suppliers.

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
