IPA is a trusted and reliable partner to clients in low and middle income countries (LMICs), providing independent procurement expertise and a reliable and resilient supply chain, often in remote areas without modern infrastructure.
We’re a strong multidisciplinary team, working with non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), governments, UN organisations, and domestic and foreign development organisations.
By delivering food, shelter, emergency supplies and pharmaceuticals we make an impact and change people’s livelihoods.
As consultants and service providers, we develop and implement the robust supply chains and procurement solutions that allow communities in crisis to regain their future.
From our HQ just outside Amsterdam, and our offices in Kampala and Juba, we support clients and projects around the globe. Our offices in East Africa can serve clients autonomously, or in close cooperation with our head office.
Bob Vlietstra has spent his career leading development projects and working in challenging environments.
In addition to his management and governance role, he is closely involved at an operational level, and has been active as an IPA consultant in South Sudan since his first visit in 1985.
