management; refreshing and standardizing position descriptions of record; and innovative recruitment practices (such
as shortened and streamlined questionnaires for gathering applicant qualifications, sending out recruitment “tweets”
on Peace Corps’ Twitter site, analyzing applicant and manager surveys on the applicant process, and tracking results
of recruitment events).

The third process review was to improve the way the agency procures medical supplies (drugs, vaccines, nonprescription
drugs). Medical supplies make up one of the agency’s largest procurement categories. A survey of all posts was conducted
to determine current sources of supplies, as well as the availability and cost of supplies from local sources and regional
or third-country sources. The purpose of the survey was to determine if using regional supply sources and relying less
on the headquarters would produce cost-savings (save money, shorten lead times, and improve fulfillment rates). The
data are being analyzed to determine if it is appropriate to consider establishing regional supply sources.
