Thank you everyone for joining today. This is Lisa Hilmi, Executive Director of CORE Group. I lost my voice, so can't speak, but welcome you all. Please have your questions ready.

Hi this is Alex from Global Communities. How do you evaluate offers in the system to show that the procurement process was fair and transparent? For instance in the "needs" section is there a place to add evaluation criteria?
CORE Group
44:36
@Alex- There is a section to put your comments for evaluating the product after you receive it

Hi Jim from Good360. This looks great - especially with the focus on Africa. 1) Can Ben talk a little more about Logistics and Connections? 2) Will you be open to a broader set of products - apparel, shoes, furniture? thanks!

We are working with MOH also, because we want to ensure all products meet country standards and regulations.
Carey Westgate

Thank you!
CORE Group

This is NOT a system to bypass MOH, but to reach a wider population, so end-users could be hospitals, CSOs, INGOs and more.
Alex Bronnenkant
50:30
Can you attach documents to the needs and offers? Let's say for instance you're looking for a contractor to do rehabilitation of a health facility or provide a COVID response hygiene kit. Could you include a BoQ and then have a vendor fill their offered prices for each item in excel and reupload or could you have them fill a chart directly in the system?
CORE Group
52:05
There may be country-country offers- like Kenya to Somalia or Ethiopia to Kenya
Julie Dargis
52:16
Free offers and discounted offers would then need the organization to cover the costs of transport if it is not included in the offer.
CORE Group
52:51
For example, IN Narok county, there is a mask maker coalition with young women- they may want to join as a supplier.
CORE Group

Put Hygiene kit" with description
CORE Group
55:04
We have in-country parnters
CORE Group
55:15
Interaction isn't at country level.
CORE Group
55:32
Each country will have a logistics focal point
CORE Group
55:49
And we have long standing relationships with the countries we are rolling out in
CORE Group
01:01:37
Any additional questions?
CORE Group
01:01:58
Any things you see that are needed?
Carey Westgate
01:03:05
Can you elaborate on how you plan to work w/ MOH to ensure products meet country standards? Is this a role for the in country logistics coordinator?
Enock Musyoka
01:03:14
What’s the range of services or supplies that people/organizations can post on the platform?
Alex Bronnenkant
01:04:02
After an organization registers is there a limit to the number of users they can have in the system? Can users from the same organization use the platform simultaneously? Does this software integrate with any financial systems? It's great that we can confirm if something is received in the warehouse, but can we also track if we've paid a vendor in this system?
Carey Westgate
01:04:53
Thanks!
Kristen Fanfant
01:05:37
Is there a potential to expand to countries in Latin America and the Caribbean in the near future? Or the focus of the project at the moment is in Africa?
Alex Bronnenkant
01:06:14
Ok great!
Alex Bronnenkant
01:06:22

Kristen Fanfant
