[INFOGRAPHIC] Negotiating a Successful FSP Contract with your Provider

The FSP model has existed for nearly two decades, evolving along the way to satisfy a demand for resources and to help combat increasing drug development costs. CROS NT’s FSP services are driven by a commitment to a 5-point flexible and scalable approach to handle the needs of small, medium and large companies and lay the foundation for successful outcomes, no matter the choice of delivery model.

FSP Delivery Models

The composition of the team who will deliver the FSP work is driven by the requirements of the customer, both in terms of budget and quality. Requirements are explored to select the best combination of delivery options to ensure maximum success.

The FSP 2.0 model overcomes difficulties related to turnover or engagement, which can cause issues for delivery. In this model, the majority of the team works 60-70% on the FSP contract. Team members are also working for other customers and projects during their time off the contract, giving them variety in their work and provides easy, more complete integration into the company, which lowers turnover. This model requires more personnel to be trained in the Sponsor’s processes.

Designed for smaller companies that need access to a scalable and broad range of expertise without a commitment to creating an in-house data management or statistical department, the Micro FSP model provides access to services only when needed. Companies can save on recruitment fees, training costs and HR management time while avoiding having too much – or not enough – work for full-time employees.
