HOW DIFFERENT CLIENT OVERSIGHT RATIOS STACK UP

The amount of value a sponsor derives from outsourcing to a CRO partly depends on the amount of internal resources they allocate for oversight. The less sponsor-side staff needed to oversee the work of the CRO, the more efficient the engagement becomes. While the average strategic partnership is 1:8, meaning one sponsor-side overseer for every eight CRO employees, PAREXEL uses a unique trust and verify approach that can enable ratios as high as 1:15, delivering value while reducing costs over time.

1:8The average strategic partnership with a CRO helps reduce internal costs, and therefore the total cost of late stage development over time, setting up clients for increased success in late phase. PAREXEL can do it even better.
