6.2 PROCUREMENT OF DRUGS

The procurement process is a major determinant of the safety, efficacy, quality, affordability and availability of drugs. Its objective is to provide drugs on the basis of relevant information, need and available resources. To address the situation, the following criteria shall be adhered to:

i Government shall be committed to good pharmaceutical procurement practices in the public sector;

ii Procurement of drugs shall be restricted to drugs registered in Nigeria and on the Essential Drugs List;

iii Procurement in the public sector shall be by International Non-Proprietary Names (INN) or generic names only;

iv Procurement at all levels shall be by open, competitive tender and shall be conducted in a transparent manner with the advice of the Pharmacy Department. To encourage local drug manufacture, preference shall be given to the purchase of locally manufactured drugs;

v Procurement shall be based on accurate quantification of drug requirements by the Pharmacy Department;

vi Procurement and receipt procedures shall ensure that drugs supplied are of good quality;

vii In order to keep prices low and undertake adequate quality assessment, drugs, shall as much as possible, be purchased in bulk;

viii Drugs procured at all levels shall be subjected to quality assessment before distribution to dispensing units.
