GMS: up to five more years of technical support to grantees of the Global Fund

Friday, October 19th 2012

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) just announced “that on September 30, 2012, it was awarded a contract by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to continue its project Grant Management Solutions (GMS) with 25 partners. The initial three-year term of the new contract may be extended up to an additional two years, and has a ceiling value of $99.9 million”. Not only will GMS continue, as it did successfully in its first five-year contract, to provide globally “short-term technical support” to CCMs and grantees of the Global Fund, but it will also carry out two additional objectives: “to build capacity of regional consulting institutions and consultants” to increase local and regional capacity in management and skills in Global Fund-related technical needs AND “to develop, document, and transfer technical tools, best practices” to other Global Fund technical support agencies and stakeholders.

GMS headquarter is based in Arlington, Virginia (USA). The partnership is led by MSH with six major US-based partners. The 25 member GMS partnership includes another 6 regional partners, targeted by the second objective, and 13 regional and international subcontractors (including zeGOgroup).
