Axios International Inc., a U.S. small business within the Axios group of companies, along with a consortium of organizations, is responsible for two IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity) contracts: USAID Global Health Supply Chain Technical Assistance (GHSC-TA) and the Global Health Supply Chain-Procurement and Supply Management Project (GHSC-PSM), which aim to improve the availability of health commodities worldwide.

About the Projects

GHSC-TA and GHSC-PSM aim to strengthen supply systems and strategic collaboration to improve the long-term availability of health commodities.

GHSC-TA will serve the health commodity technical assistance needs of USAID, other USG agencies, partner country governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other entities to meet the evolving challenges in ensuring long-term availability of health commodities in public and private services worldwide. As part of this multi award IDIQ, Axios will lead a consortium of organizations, which includes Chemonics International, Inc., Abt Associates, Dimagi, Inc., Expertise France, Foundation for Professional Development, IMA World Health, Medical Access Uganda Limited and Panagora Group. Axios is the only small business contract holder in the consortium.

GHSC-PSM fosters collaboration among supply chain stakeholders worldwide by reducing costs and streamlining and strengthening global and national supply chains. Key areas of emphasis include data visibility (integrated information management), robust global engagement (tracking, analyzing and sharing information on market dynamics) and commercial best practices (strengthening local systems and building capacity in supply chain management). GHSC-PSM utilizes the Supply Chain Operations Reference model (SCOR), which links business processes, performance metrics, practices and people into a unified structure. Under GHSC-PSM, Axios is part of a consortium of organizations, which includes Chemonics International, Inc., IBM, Kuehne+Nagel, McKinsey & Company, ARBOLA, INC., IDA Foundation, IntraHealth International, Panagora Group, Population Services International, SGS Nederland B.V. and University Research Co.

Both projects are managed through the AI Inc. Washington D.C. office.
