Activity Background

Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) is in the process of implementing a new (Enterprise Resource Planning) ERP  to improve its supply chain. The ERP system is expected to greatly improve the way the organization conducts its business and improve the visibility of its supply chain. KEMSA has identified and agreed on the SAP ERP system through a G2G arrangement with the University of Nairobi for which the procurement process and contract has been finalized. KEMSA intends to have the core modules of procurement, warehouse, distribution, finance, and HR up and running within 3 months of the implementation. In-line with the on-going USAID support to the reforms framework, KEMSA has requested USAID to provide technical assistance to support implementation of the new ERP.

The ERP implementation management consultant will ensure the successful adoption of the ERP system across the organization, facilitating buy-in, and ensure a smooth transition to the new ERP environment. The consultant will collaborate closely with the KEMSA-appointed change management lead to ensure effective engagement in KEMSA processes and successful ERP adoption. To achieve a sustained and optimized utilization of the ERP, the consultant will develop and implement a tailored change management strategy for the ERP implementation. SoCha is seeking an ERP Change Management Expert to support USAID/KEA’s Health Population and Nutrition Office to provide the technical support required by KEMSA.
