Submitted to the US Agency for International Development by the Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems (SPS) Program. Arlington, VA: Management Sciences for Health.
This report describes the process of developing needs-based, capacity-building strategic objectives and the results of a capacity needs assessment that informed a stakeholder forum to develop these objectives; it also summarizes the agenda-setting workshop that reached consensus on these objectives and the next steps.
The capacity needs assessment was conducted by DGFP and SPS with the support of USAID in August 2010 to assess existing strengths and identify areas for developing competency in DGFP procurement and supply chain management at all levels.
DGFP and SPS held a workshop in February 2011 to review findings of the capacity needs assessment, complete a structured process to identify key capacity building issues and strategies, and define relevant strategic objectives.
The assessment included a sample of 206 procurement and supply chain management staff from 52 sites.
