1.3 Coordination with other support functions

Effective coordination between administration, procurement, logistics, security and human resources in an emergency response is critical. All four units are interdependent in the delivery of effective support services. Often these functions will report to one manager (ACD programme support). The Administration Manager must coordinate very effectively with:

  • procurement for the timely and effective purchase of equipment and supplies, and contracting of service providers
  • logistics for the effective management of transport and vehicle management
  • the Safety and Security Officer to ensure buildings and vehicles comply with safety and security standards
  • HR to provide the right support to incoming personnel.
