About Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management is central to CRS’ mission to deliver life-saving and life-improving goods and services in the 116 countries we serve. Our supply chain innovations enable CRS to put our faith into action to serve our program participants, their communities, and maximize the contributions of our generous donors.

CRS supply chain staff around the world acquire, store, transport, and deliver life-saving goods and services using real-time supply chain data to make evidence-based decisions and prioritizing the most viable market-based solutions to provide cash and voucher assistance to vulnerable populations. Our commitment to innovation, agility, and resilience throughout the supply chain enables us to serve our program participants more and more seamlessly.

Together, with governments, NGOs, communities, local Churches, secular institutions, generous donors, inspiring partners, and our mission-driven team—we continue to strive for excellence in the quality, responsiveness, and sustainability of our supply chain practices.

Supply Chain Management Handbook

The CRS Supply Chain Management Handbook captures best practices in supply chain management that enable CRS to effectively meet the needs of those we serve. Additionally, the handbook includes a Health Annex for CRS staff who manage projects and activities that involve health products.
