Documents : General Terms and Conditions for IC Offeror’s Template/Financial Proposal P11 Template

Overview : The unprecedented spread of COVID-19 in the Philippines has resulted to a shortage of medical PPEs across the healthcare system. Hospitals have begun publicly requesting for donations to help solve this problem. While several individuals and organizations have responded to the call to help, there is a pressing need to coordinate these actions to ensure that the supplies are delivered to the right hospital at the right time, quantity, and quality.

UNDP Philippines, in line with of UNDP’s global offer on COVID-19 response, aims to support local and volunteer manufacturers of health and medical supplies to strengthen the national health system through a business matching digital solution. This initiative aims to provide a collaboration platform to accelerate production and distribution of essential items in order to meet increasing demand for personal protective equipment (PPE), ensure product quality standards, and provide livelihood opportunities for low-skilled and vulnerable groups.

Methods for addressing medical supply chain issues will not be possible simply by redirecting government resources and logistics or through public and private donors, but by more effectively linking demand to potential informal sector and small-scale suppliers. The Bangsamoro ARMM’s Ministry of Health could benefit from a ‚supply management‘ platform given its very basic capabilities in this regard.

Together with the Department of Trade and Industry and the relevant ministries in BARMM, this initiative will fast track a matchmaking and accreditation process for local manufacturers, ensuring the quality goods reach the hospitals low on stock on time. The system will involve an online platform for tracking supply related information that could be accessed by contracted suppliers, national and local governments, for both making new entries as well as accessing supply related information.

UNDP will serve as a resource center for business and/or grant opportunities, matching the sources as well as the beneficiaries. It will take on challenges to address bottlenecks and chokepoints as well as inclusion of unmapped suppliers onboard in order to ensure that no one gets left behind. Shifts in models and narratives that emerge out of these disruptions will be captured to support institutionalization of best practices in the transition towards a more sustainable and inclusive business environment.
