Global Fund’s wambo.org platform has not achieved projected savings, nor improved lead times for orders, OIG says
Although clients using wambo.org express a high degree of satisfaction with the platform, the project has experienced delays, has not achieved projected savings, and has not improved lead times for orders, compared to the Pooled Procurement Mechanism (PPM).
The Global Fund Board has agreed to allow wambo.org to facilitate, on a pilot basis, 10 procurements by principal recipients (PRs) using domestic funding. Each procurement can be for multiple products.
