5 What is difference between Procurement & Purchasing:- Purchasing refers solely to the process of buying goods and services, whereas procurement is a macro-process involving not only the process of purchasing of services and goods but also the logistics, storage, reception, inspection and monitoring processes. eProcurement is macro-process developed with the help of ICT.
6 Relevance of eProc in the buyer’s industry:- Since government is responsible for free the health care of citizens, the precautionary and curative measures attracts large volume of number of pharmaceuticals. Typical challenges for E-Procurement in this industry / region? More number of prosperous of bidders Finalization of specification for medicine is a issue Patented medicines does not have competitor Small change in ingredients cause great change in cost Continuous procurement
7 Benefits of eProc:- Reduce transaction costs for procurement of pharma products Improve process efficiency of procurement Increase contract compliance Reduce cycle times to manage efficient supply-chain of medicine Save inventory costs & avoid stagnation wastage due to expiry
8 Monitoring of Benefits of eProc:- Reduce transaction costs for procurement of pharma products Tracking of expenses: Average Cost per sample Improve process efficiency of procurement Monitoring of Reduction in Time & manpower Reduce cycle times to manage efficient supply-chain of medicine Monitoring reduced cycle time Save inventory costs & avoid stagnation wastage due to expiry. Comparing earlier experience and present one.
9 Officials of Health Dept gather requirements for whole country & creates specifications. Procurement for each pharma product is done by inviting bid through eSourcing system developed internally. Generic medicines are procured based on approved catalogue price. All pharma product manufacturers are registered with the government. Suppliers duty is to supply the quality product at the location mentioned in the RFP. Fragmented drug procurement at provincial or district level. Absence of a comprehensive procurement policy Government funding which is insufficient and/or released irregularly
10 Large Number of Suppliers & Products Vested Interest of Prominent Suppliers and officials Patented pharma products need to be recognized and not to be compared with other products. Inadequate rules, regulations and structures Public sector staff with little experience in responding to market situations Donor agencies with conflicting procurement regulations Lack of unbiased market information Lack of trained procurement staff.
