Strategic Sourcing Guide to Clinical Data Management Procurement

Overview

Clinical and Medical Support Services market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Clinical Data Management procurement and the cost they have to incur. Despite increasing costs on almost all fronts, suppliers are resisting a drastic price increase due to intense competition where market players are willing to increase their market share at the cost of profitability. Therefore, buyers can expect pricing status quo in most cases, or only negligible to marginal price increases in some cases.

Over the years, regional boundaries have blurred as suppliers foray into different continents, increase their capital expenditure and spend on cross-border M&A initiatives. The deployment of geographic diversification strategies through such consolidation initiatives has enabled the large suppliers to improve their performance and expand their business footprint.

New locations and vendors are emerging as cost effective suppliers of Clinical Data Management, offering an opportunity to widen the supplier base and gain further negotiation leverage with incumbent suppliers.

Clinical Data Management Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Clinical Data Management procurement.

For example, Buyers must clearly define clauses pertaining to the ownership of subcontracted services that are not part of their service providers' portfolios. This is necessary to ensure service consistency and control over sensitive data that are shared with sub-contracted firms.

Large organizational buyers can leverage their scale of operations to initiate competitive bidding between suppliers. Competitive bidding would enable buyers to have a better visibility of the market prices and may help identify suppliers that offer the most competitive price offering viz-a-viz other players.

Before engaging in a contractual agreement with suppliers, buyers should focus on identifying and understanding various critical parameters along with their impacts on different procurement models.

Risks in Clinical Data Management procurement

Clinical Data Management procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Clinical Data Management procurement. Some examples include:


  • Suppliers are posed with the risk of non-conformance to industry standards and regulations, for example, those set by MHRA (UK) and US FDA. Any non-conformance by suppliers can result in penalties, product recalls or even revoking of the operating license
  • Suppliers may face a situation where they are unable to honor a contract in its entirety due to shortage of resources, finances or capabilities. While contractual terms safeguard buyers from the non-performance, their operations could still face massive disruptions due to suppliers' non-performance
  • Suppliers are exposed to the risk of fluctuating prices of key inputs. This impacts the product price as suppliers would have to increase product price to maintain contribution margins
