Outsourcing has become a bigger part of our industry. This seminar will define what it means to use third party vendors and the reasons to use them. We will review the types of vendors or suppliers that may be needed, the reasons for outsourcing certain functions within the biopharmaceutical or medical device industry to such suppliers, and the regulatory imperatives associated with using outside vendors as defined in the CFR, ICH Guidance and ASTM E-2500.
You will learn a formalized approach to identify the need for outside service providers, how to qualify third party vendors, getting the process outsourced to the selected supplier, and engaging as well as managing your supplier. We will review some of the advantages of outsourcing as well as the perils and pitfalls to avoid.
We will discuss make-buy analysis, request for proposals (RFP) and their content, the need to conduct supplier audits, and eventual benchmarking of services’ quality and cost. The seminar will touch on all aspects of identifying, qualifying, engaging and managing third party suppliers in the FDA regulated industries.
