Action items for next call
Action Items from January Governance
(carried over from Dec) Area we need to keep talking about: how do we keep growing our sales channels?
(carried over from Dec) We need to articulate language around getting existing implementations to pay into the core: Carl suggests having 'support contracts' built into our proposals; any unused of that retainer rolls into core software support. This could be palatable for countries because they are getting something out of it. Ashraf suggests we automatically entitled to future upgrades without paying anything extra
tentative interest expressed by SolDevelo, VillageReach–any others? (Due Jan 25)
Have dropped the requirement for a local presence
Now that the RFP has been re-issed without this local presence requirement, I believe our community is in a much better position to respond to this RFP. We designed our vaccine functionality based on UNICEF hosting us in Copenhagen in 2017 and UNICEF is the top organization for vaccine supply chains globally, so this is a great opportunity for us.
Based on agreement at the OpenLMIS Community Meeting in November 2019, these are the areas for exploration:
Partnership to Handover - Working Group
Explore handover partnership options to find shared value aligned with community must-haves / nice-to-haves
Identify other shared value or synergy with private sector products and services
Test OpenLMIS subscription opportunities with private clinics, hospitals, pharmacies
Data Sharing and Value of Data - CHAI analysis contributes into this workstream
Explore data sharing agreements with country stakeholders
Public Health - Kelly/BMGF and Lindabeth/USAID
Coordinate with current and new implementations to establish annual fee for maintenance/support and country implementation input into priorities
Community Engagement - Digital Square and DIAL OSC
Shift the community engagement model; e.g. define Trusted Partner roles in future state; revisit 3 committees
Local/regional capacity building for support and development
Draft TOR of the Working Group
- The WG will provide an update to the GC at each GC meeting.
-The WG will: decide how widely and openly to search for new partners, determine how partners are scored/evaluated, participate in calls with them, work on a proposed choice of the handover partner and will eventually bring that proposed choice to the GC for a vote.
-Brian T (OpenLMIS Director) has agreed to Chair the Working Group; so there is a steward guiding the way and moving activities forward
-How long should this process take? (aim for 4 months; aim for this. early deliverable is a set of decison-points/ milestones for the 4 months)
Decision-making power: clarify if the working group itself will make the final decision or bring to governance for final vote?
Timelines- coordinate number 1 and 2; so the data conversation can inform the Working Group
Thinking ahead: it might be wise to plan for an in person meeting with whatever partner we choose; to start fostering new working relationships. Just planting the idea so folks can start thinking about it now; reserving funding as needed
Implementation opportunity: an opportunity for an implementation or deployment of the OpenLMIS software. Usually this is done at a national or sub-national level within a ministry of health. This can also include feature work which would be done within the implementation and contributed back to the global codebase.
Community opportunity: a funding opportunity to support an organization or individual to work directly on the global codebase and/or administrate the community processes. This may include funding specific features on the community roadmap.
Country implementation opportunities:
This Trello tableis being updated on an ongoing basis; to help the core team to track and manage implementation opportunities, but also provides a detailed snapshot of the scope and status of current implementation opportunities for stakeholders.
New Trello table! Similar to the above table, this tool is being used by the stewards to track our exploring of new product opportunities and partnerships
