OIG investigation reveals small-scale fraud by a supplier for a Global Fund TB grant to Burkina Faso
An investigation by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has found evidence of small-scale fraud on the part of a local supplier. It also found that the principal recipient (PR) of a TB grant did not take appropriate action in awarding a contract to the supplier and in responding to the fraudulent activities once they became known.
The Global Fund Board has agreed to allow wambo.org to facilitate, on a pilot basis, 10 procurements by principal recipients (PRs) using domestic funding. Each procurement can be for multiple products.
The Global Fund is developing a comprehensive supply chain strategy that will define a scope of responsibility, oversight, and necessary initiatives to address supply chain challenges.
