Seuss+ Clinical Trial Governance & Vendor Oversight Process

Step 1

Vendor Management

Implement the tools for effective vendor management and oversight, ensure quality & compliance, and create a common understanding of the objectives, timelines, and risk mitigation plans.

Step 3

Performance Management

We help you create a detailed plan of action, with clearly defined KPIs and SOPs, fully oversight documentation, communication plans and tools for escalation.

Step 4

Governance & Oversight

From committee mapping and roles and responsibilities to the most effective meeting structures and agendas, together we build a detailed governance plan.
