Discover our formalized vendor selection process

We have a proven, multi-dimensional supplier selection methodology. While we facilitate the entire process, you’ll be equiped with the tools and insights you need to make an informed and data-driven decision on your new vendor. 

Step 1

Alignment Meeting

We kick off the project with a workshop designed to help your team formulate and define the key selection criteria.

Step 2

Market Scan

Through in-depth market research, we identify vendors who match your specific criteria for your RFP process.

Step 3

RFP Creation

We create a tailored RFP based on the study synopsis, selection criteria, and insights gathered in previous steps.

Step 4

RFP Analysis

After vendor responses are collected, we analyze and compare strategies, timelines, and cost structures to help you make better decisions.

Step 5

Bid Defense

We organize and facilitate your bid-defense meeting, where defined exercises ensure reliability from the vendor candidates.

Step 6

Contract Negotiation

With our guidance and commercial experience, we promise to get you the best terms and conditions in your new partnership.


Comprehensive knowledge of the CROs and industry best practices help you quickly and efficiently narrow the universe of vendors.


Solutions are not one-size-fits-all. A customized RFP gives you a complete picture of the relevant vendor landscape to your study.


Thorough analysis and scoring of RFP responses, coupled with strong CRO and vendor knowledge, identify the strongest candidates to participate in bid defense.


Unbiased and comprehensive due diligence – including vendor risk analysis, pricing, and contract negotiations – means you will find only the most suitable solution for you.


Seuss+’s CRO and vendor selection solutions include facilitation of the entire process, using a formal selection process and each offering uniquely contigured to each client’s specific vendor requirements and project objectives. Here are some related services:
