Functional Service Partnerships (FSP)

Video: FSP Engagement Model

Your outsourcing needs are not “one size fits all.” Your functional service partnership (FSP) solution shouldn’t be either.

PPD® FSP approaches functional outsourcing as a customizable solution that focuses on high quality, measurable outcomes and cost savings. Our people are at the heart of providing these services successfully. We understand that hiring the right talent to meet your needs is critical.

PPD FSP tailors a solution to meet a variety of outsourcing needs. From traditional full-time equivalent (FTE) FSP models to units-based contracts and geographical-aligned outsourcing agreements, the PPD FSP team will develop a solution to align with your functional requirements.

While we collaborate with clients in a variety of traditional FSP models, PPD FSP has also developed a simple outputs-based model as a unique alternative. By shifting to an output-based model, PPD’s clients pay for operational successes while benefiting from streamlined operations, enhanced client relationships and optimized quality. That’s part of the reason we provide FSP support to nine of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies, and one more way we help clients bend the time cost and cost time curve of drug development.

Our dedicated business unit focuses on our full range of FSP services, including clinical monitoring, regulatory strategy and document preparation, data management, biostatistics/statistical programming, pharmacovigilance, site activation (site identification through site initiation) and medical writing. In addition, PPD® Laboratories FSP offers customized laboratory solutions to fit the particular needs of each program — from individual contributors for point-of-need situations to entire technical teams with PPD Laboratories’ management structure.
