Functional Service Provider (FSP)
Finding it difficult to balance outsourced studies and in-house operations at the same time?
Access our deep resource pool
FSPs can drive down costs and make you even more agile
We have created a flexible sourcing approach that gives sponsors the benefit of our clinical research expertise and access to our extensive resources. The advantages we offer can take many forms – from outsourcing to server hosting, from siting data operations in cost-friendly markets to hybrid approaches that combine on-site resources, off-site resources, and global sourcing efficiency.
Our functional service provider model lets you control and fine-tune your level of involvement so you have full flexibility in deciding how hands-on (or hands-off) you want to be. Not ready to move to an FSP model? We can also help you build out a framework for success, including developing and/or supporting:
- In-house standard operating procedures (SOPs)
- Standard document templates
- Data collection and reporting standards
- Preferred electronic data capture (EDC) or study dashboard systems
- Standard metrics packages
Contact us today to learn more about the approach that’s right for you.

Flexibility and cost savings ahead
Functional outsourcing can produce significant savings and greatly increase flexibility in assigning resources. But any big change in staffing requires care to avoid personnel disruptions, keep projects on track, and comply with laws governing use of contract employees.
