Safety Gap Analysis Report Example
GHANA PVS Gap Analysis August 2011
In some chapters, the specific additional resources required are described in more
detail: this includes items such as the inspection and control of veterinary medicines,
increased laboratory capacity, support of international trade access and cross-cutting
communication. In other chapters, the additional resources required may appear very
low: for example direct spending on „animal health‟ may only be the purchase of
vaccine for a control programme - so the budget appears low for this component as
other fixed costs are covered elsewhere salaries, communications, training, etc.
The overall budget analysis (Chapter VI) synthesises the different budget lines: on-
going investment, salaries, repairs and maintenance, operations, etc. This budget
demonstrates the effectiveness of the PVS Gap Analysis, its sustainability and also
identifies the need to incorporate the programme into the quality control policy of the
Veterinary Services.
The international currency used in this report for the estimation of costs and the
budget is the USD (US dollars). The exchange rate is 1 USD for 1.5 GH₵ (Ghana
In Ghana the annual renewal rate of buildings/facilities, transport and equipment has
been determined as such:
o 5 % of construction cost for building maintenance
o 20 % of purchasing value for cars and 4X4 vehicles
o 33 % of purchasing value for motorbikes
o 25% of purchasing value for cold chain
o 20 % of purchasing value for laboratory equipment
o 33 % of purchasing value for telecommunication and computer equipment sets.
1.2.C Organisation of the report
The desired levels of advancement for each critical competency were identified,
recognising national priorities and constraints, in discussion with the Veterinary
Services of Ghana. A PVS Gap Analysis was then completed to facilitate their
compliance with recognised international standards as determined by the OIE. The
following chapters indicate the resources and activities necessary to strengthen the
Veterinary Services. The chapters follow a logical order identifying priorities,
recognising constraints and issues, assessing processes and resources necessary
and providing a work-plan for improvement.
Chapter II.2 of the methodology part sets out the levels of advancement to be
reached as decided by the Veterinary Services in discussion with the PVS Gap
Analysis mission team.
The first four chapters of the part presenting the PVS Gap Analysis set out the
objectives to be achieved, identifying the needs to strengthen the technical
independence and coordination of the Veterinary Services.
o Chapter I sets the standards required for International trade in animals and
animal products. Establishing the levels of advancement required for exports
sets the target for strengthening the Veterinary Services.
o Chapter II addresses animal health issues, the recognised core mission of any
Veterinary Services.
o Chapter III considers veterinary public health, specifically food safety,
veterinary medicines and biologicals and zoonoses.
o Chapter IV considers the capability and capacity of veterinary laboratories, as
required by the three preceding chapters.
