The Partnership for Supply Chain Management Systems (SCMS) was established to strengthen or establish secure, reliable, cost-effective and sustainable supply chains to meet the care and treatment needs of people living with or affected by HIV and AIDS. In collaboration with in-country and international partners, SCMS works to employ innovative solutions to assist programs to enhance their supply chain capacity; ensuring that accurate supply chain information is collected, shared and used; and providing quality, best-value, health care products to those who need them.

In Uganda, SCMS will no longer provide technical support to the MOH and other government agencies for supply chain management system. This support will now be provided by the new SURE (Securing Ugandans' Right to Essential Medicines) project, the activities of which are described in the OHSS section. SCMS will, however, continue to provide ARV procurement services to PEPFAR implementing partners. The number of partners procuring ARVs through SCMS will increase from two to the following seven partners: Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU), Northern Uganda Malaria AIDS and TB program (NUMAT), Strengthening TB and AIDS Response East (STAR-E) and STAR East Central, and STAR-South West. SCMS will also provide procurement services to the TREAT (JCRC) program during the period Oct 2009 to Sept 2010 to ensure uninterrupted supplies while the program is in a transition period.

The procurement support will be provided by a fulltime national trained by SCMS HQ on procurement policies, procedures and software tools, who will assist programs to forecast and quantify their ARV requirements, updated quarterly, throughout the year. and update their . ceas: The procurement services include

To ensure uninterrupted supply of ARVs to seven partners in the coming year, two fulltime in-country SCMS staff will be managing the procurement process (quantification preparation, submission of orders, shipment tracking, communication with HQ, USAID, partners) and oversee the customs clearance, NDA verfication, and storage and distribution services provided by Joint Medical Stores. Assistance in quantification will also be provided to partners as needed. The SCMS staff will be housed with the new SURE project to reduce administrative costs.
