Availability of stocks
To carry out their mission, the Purchasing, Procurement and Product departments teams work together.
MSF Supply has a wide portfolio of products for which it guarantees prices and availability times. We go to a lot of effort to keep the data from suppliers up to date.
The department’s goal is to ensure stock is available for missions.
This involves keeping some items in stock (regular stock, emergency stock or kits) and managing mission-specific items.
We have to find a balance between stock levels (warehouse capacity, stock value, product life span, etc.) and service levels to the missions.
