How to Manage CRO RFPs to Cut Your Clinical Outsourcing Planning Time in Half

  • Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Outsourcing trials to contract research organizations (CRO) can be difficult since each trial has its own set of assumptions, and request for proposal (RFP) creation and management generally requires manual effort. Additionally, each vendor organizes tasks and resources differently, so evaluating bids is like comparing apples to oranges. These challenges can ultimately lead to study start delays and change orders because tasks were left out, misunderstood, or under-bid.

What if you were able to significantly shorten your RFP and bid management cycle times? In this session, our feature speaker will discuss not only how to gain efficiencies in your outsourcing processes, but also how you can determine the optimal outsourcing model for your trial and leverage industry intelligence for better negotiations.

Join this webinar to learn how to:

  • Generate and make updates to RFPs quickly and easily
  • Know if you are paying fair market value (FMV) for outsourced studies
  • Effortlessly compare proposals to each other or against industry standard rates
  • Leverage benchmark pricing for vendor negotiations
  • Reduce contract and negotiation cycle times
