Contracting with Contract Research Organizations (CROs)

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are more and more frequently using the services of contract research organizations (CROs) to access expertise or technology not available in-house for key clinical services in an effort to most effectively use limited resources. This course covers the identification, selection, and management of CROs in the performance of clinical projects. Additional topics include selecting the best CRO for a project, request for proposal (RFP) components, bid review and negotiation, types of agreements, defining roles and responsibilities, managing the work once the contract is signed, including change orders and communication issues. The course is designed for medical monitors, clinical and non-clinical managers, CRAs, project managers, contract managers and others interested in strategies for selecting and effectively working with CROs.
