About the IQC

truck delivering commodities

On September 29, 2006, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT was awarded as an Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC) with individual task orders being issued for specific scopes of work. The objective of the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT is to increase the availability of essential health supplies for public and private services and programs.

The purpose of the IQC is to design, develop, strengthen and, upon request, operate safe, reliable, and sustainable supply systems that provide a range of affordable, quality essential health commodities including drugs, diagnostics, and supplies to clients in country programs. USAID field missions indicate a strong desire for technical support that strengthens all aspects of in-country supply chains, including forecasting, procurement, distribution, management information systems, quality assurance, storage, and infrastructure.

While family planning and reproductive health remain a priority in the field and for this project, field missions also seek supply chain systems that are designed to handle a range of health products, including contraceptives and condoms, essential drugs, and select commodities for HIV/AIDS, malaria, maternal and child health, avian influenza, and infectious and pandemic diseases. This IQC seeks to strengthen supply systems for all essential health commodities and create environments that are conducive to their sustainability.

The USAID | DELIVER PROJECT is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The project is a follow-on to the DELIVER project and the Family Planning Logistics Management (FPLM) project which, from 1986 to 2006, facilitated the improvement of logistics systems for family planning, reproductive health, and other preventive and curative health programs in more than 30 countries. The project, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, has field offices in 20 countries.

The project works on a number of different health commodities including contraceptives and condoms, essential drugs, as well as select commodities for HIV/AIDS, laboratories, malaria, maternal and child health, infectious diseases, outbreak response, and avian influenza. The project’s task orders support USAID’s efforts to improve product availability.
