A Solution for Sustainable Quality

The Functional Service Provision Model (FSP) provides a scalable team of resources to meet immediate or longer-term resourcing needs through on-site or remote full time employees (FTEs).

CROS NT has developed a 5-point FSP Model focused on Sustainable Quality. It is a unique offering in the sector and one of the only models that combines operational excellence coupled with a human resources element to deliver only the most qualified and best-fit resources.

Functional Service Provision 2.0

We have designed a “Next Generation FSP” or “FSP 2.0” to specifically address gaps in the traditional model. It lowers staff turnover by meeting the needs of the FSP team members.

FSP resources available by function:

  • Biostatisticians
  • Statistical od SAS programmers
  • Clinical data managers
  • Medical writers
  • Pharmacovigilance resources (data entry, case processing, etc)

Micro FSP

Micro FSP is a more scalable and flexible FSP model that provides expert resourcing solutions while avoiding the risk of not having enough work, or too much work, for  full time employees. The model is scalable to the specific needs of the company by providing resources for the number of days per week needed.

The Micro FSP is an ideal solution for small to mid-size pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies who may simply need a single resource or a small team of resources, ideally less than 10.
