Development of an Excel-based Tool to Guide Negotiations with Potential Manufacturers
WDI’s project goal was to provide the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and partners (i.e. “buyers”) with a structured way of evaluating and negotiating potential investments related to the manufacturing of specific vaccine presentations. WDI hypothesized that it could facilitate negotiations between buyers and manufacturers of vaccines by developing a flexible tool that incorporates their respective investment decision drivers and key levers related to price and value. The expected outcome of this work is increased availability of vaccines in low- and middle-income countries.
