As outsourcing models, scope of the pipeline, and complexity of protocols continue to change due to the pandemic, inflation, and world events, so must our strategies for budgeting both finances and resources. SCOPE’s Clinical Trial Forecasting, Budgeting, and Contracting track will explore the complexities of budgeting in financially uncertain times, the importance of cross-department collaboration on forecasting, and tools and algorithms to speed study-startup. We’ll explore particular challenges around site budgeting and payments, as well as strategies for contracting with technology providers. The Resource Management and Capacity Planning for Clinical Trials track will explore the impact of staff turnover and the economy on effective clinical trial capacity planning, strategies for maintaining nimbleness, and algorithms and tools to streamline the process. We’ll explore staff retention and training, as well as how and why to insource vs. outsource.
