JICS' Role

Since FY1997, in accordance with contracts with the governments of developing countries, JICS manages procurement of food, medical equipment, drugs, vehicles (water tank trucks, ambulances, etc.), construction equipment and so on. Depending on circumstances, JICS also carries out its own monitoring of how the equipment is being used after procurement. Emergency grant aid literally requires prompt action. In its role as a procurement management agent, JICS contributes to assisting people affected by natural disasters, and civil war or other man-made disasters.
