Course Description

In this web seminar, we will review the re-engineering of the Request for Proposal (RFP) and bid defense meeting to target identification of risks for the potential services to be awarded to your CRO, vendor, or supplier, whether a preferred partnership model, a “company approved list,” or based solely on project needs. This approach also gives the provider the opportunity to communicate their ability and willingness to adjust their approach and methods beyond the RFP, thus beginning a dialogue regarding management and quality oversight methods early on in the partnership. This improved process drives business efficiencies and cost savings now, rather than later during trial execution, and helps identify impact on protocol and data integrity if performance is inadequate.
