In the The March 2014 Issue,

big news for our clients! PFSCM’s quality management system at our office in Arlington, Virginia, received  ISO 9001:2008 certification from UL DQS, one of the leading ISO certification bodies for management systems in the world.

The first public health consortium organization to achieve ISO 9001:2008?

Many local and international companies across multiple sectors have achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification; however research by our team suggests that PFSCM may be unique in being listed as the only consortium of individual private sector companies and NGOs.

The Supply Chain Management System (scms) is implemented by the Partnership for Supply Chain Management, Inc.
