Functional Service Partnerships to Support Clinical Trials and Marketed Products
Top-tier Experts For Every FSP Services Project
When designing a project, you can’t always predict what talent you’ll need, let alone find that talent in an increasingly competitive market. Unlike other functional service providers, PPD FSP solutions enable biotech and pharmaceutical companies to solve their resource challenges by sourcing professionals from the same talent pool as our full-service engagements.
That means PPD FSP solutions provide the best of the best to each project — highly trained, top-tier experts who serve as extensions of your teams — and deliver more experience, knowledge and expertise than other functional service providers.
Singular Talent Pool
We employ the same best-in-class talent across all engagement models, ensuring every sponsor works with exceptionally trained professionals to successfully see their programs through.
As a result, all employees receive the full force of PPD’s global training, professional development and infrastructure. This training leads to consistently strong staff retention rates, which translates to continuity and long-term dedication to your project.
It’s important to find flexible solutions to your resourcing challenges. FSP services are available across all functions, from clinical services to marketed products. Our services are available worldwide, for one-off and large-scale projects — and everything in between.

Ease of a Single Partner
The extensive breadth and depth of our services for clinical trials and marketed products spans all phases, therapeutic areas and levels (including senior roles) — in 160 countries. This allows PPD FSP solutions to function as a single partner to your projects.
Implementing an FSP partnership is complex.
You not only need quality FSP resources and services — you have milestones to reach and timelines to hit. That’s where the implementation lead comes in. This dedicated role focuses on the onboarding of resources so engagements with a significant scope or volume of work begin with a proactive partnership.
With the implementation lead, startup responsibilities usually managed solely by an operations delivery lead are divided to create an additional layer of project oversight that drives better outcomes and more efficient communication.
Through this approach, the implementation lead drives seamless onboarding and proactive customer service – in turn avoiding startup delays, ensuring a smooth transition and meeting timeline commitments.
Operations Delivery Lead
To establish, maintain, and nurture the partnership forged by the implementation lead, an operations delivery lead is dedicated to your project, serving as a single point of contact that provides oversight and aligns with the you on timelines, strategies and project delivery.
Through ongoing engagement and collaboration, the operations delivery lead provides dedicated oversight, planning and partnership-building that creates greater stability, productivity and satisfaction.
In today’s drug development climate, organizations must ensure proper utilization across programs. PPD FSP solutions help you navigate staffing challenges by offering a dedicated staff transfer team focused on change management and business continuity. The staff transfer team
- shifts costs from direct to indirect to give more flexibility and allow right-sized workforces,
- has expertise in Acquired Rights Directive (ARD) laws and regulations with transfer success rates between 70% and 100% ,
- eliminates risks involved in hiring and layoff cycles, and
- condenses vendor contracts to reduce legal, financial and ongoing oversight burden.
