Chemonics is seeking candidates for the anticipated 5-year, 
multi-billion dollar United States Agency for International Development 
(USAID) funded Global Health Supply Chain Project, expected to be 
awarded and operational in September 2014. The project will consolidate 
the procurement and assistance components of the current USAID DELIVER 
and USAID Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) programs and will be the 
primary vehicle through which USAID will procure and provide health 
commodities to partner countries and provide assistance to improve 
countries' management of the supply chains for such commodities. To 
support global health initiatives in HIV/AIDS, malaria, maternal and 
child health, and reproductive health, the project has three primary 
objectives: global commodity procurement and logistics, systems 
strengthening to support in-country supply chain management, and 
collaboration via strategic engagement to improve long-term global 
supply of health commodities.
