How To Do MSD Procurement: Practical Insights From Donors and Implementers
Sharing experiences, tips and solutions around navigating MSD programme management and procurement challenges
Development programmes typically involve a collaboration between donors (who pay) and implementers (who do). Procurement and contracting are used to reconcile the overlap in their interests, in a formal and transparent manner. It can, however, become an adversarial process. This hinders the building of a constructive relationship necessary for the flexible, adaptive approach that is so vital for MSD to be effective in reducing poverty.
From January to April 2020, BEAM organised a series of MSD Procurement Clinics. These were closely-facilitated online spaces for small groups of MSD managers and advisors to share experiences, tips and solutions around navigating MSD programme management and procurement challenges.
The speakers, one from each of the four groups, will reflect on the process and highlight key lessons for MSD donors, consultants and implementers.
