Chemonics / GHSC-PSMVillageReachSIGLUS evaluation for upgrade to OpenLMIS v3 in Mozambique

VillageReach submitted a proposal in response to RFP #PSM-MOZ-RFP-007 Mozambique SIGLUS Technical Assessment for OpenLMIS v3 Upgrade on April 25, 2018 and submitted a 'best and final' proposal on May 30, 2018. As of June 18, 2018, VillageReach is optimistic that Chemonics is preparing contract documents to move ahead with this engagement.

VillageReach's proposal includes some mobile software development support from both Ona and ThoughtWorks. The scope of the proposal is an assessment, not including any software development activities, but we sought out technical support because the scope does include creating detailed specifications and recommending work plans for software development activities.

Note: The opportunity to upgrade SIGLUS in Mozambique may also dovetail with the opportunity to upgrade SELV (the Vaccine/EPI instance of OpenLMIS in Mozambique) by trying to align with other funders and projects including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Chemonics / GHSC-PSMVillageReachOpenLMIS implementation in Angola 

VillageReach and JSI are continuing a dialogue with Chemonics about a possible scope of work for a first preparatory phase of an implementation of OpenLMIS v3. VillageReach previously contributed to a Readiness Assessment, and there are a number of areas to address to lay the groundwork for a successful implementation.

Update 18/June/2018: VillageReach is partnering with JSI to help support this SOW. We have come to agreement with Chemonics on a final SOW and specific deliverables, and now are working on finalizing budgets and trip planning to move towards contract signing.
