BIO's member companies in the pharmaceutical, life sciences, chemicals, and biotechnology sectors routinely and strategically outsource their research needs, driven by a demand to stay competitive, cut costs, increase innovation, and have access to specialized knowledge. Identifying a contract research organization (CRO) requires vendor communication, diligence, legal negotiation, and selection, complimented with market knowledge, defining statement of work (SOW), project tracking, and data reporting.  Overall, this requires a tremendous amount of time and capital—before any work is done.
