Philadelphia, PA, United States., June 11, 2013 - (PressReleasePoint) -Compliance Implementation Services (CIS), a leading life sciences consulting firm, today announced that it will host a webinar entitled “Proactive Auditing to Ensure CRO Corporate Compliance and Contract Adherence” that provides a case study presentation on CIS’ first-hand experience and unique insight into working with and auditing CROs.

It is best practice for a manufacturer's annual risk assessment and audit plan to include a focused evaluation of its CROs that not only considers the clinical processes and activities transferred and the regulatory consequences therein, but that also considers the CRO's corporate compliance program and associated controls.

CIS has worked with manufacturers to build audit programs targeting compliance and contracting vulnerabilities and performed the transactional testing required to expose areas of concern, potential compliance threats, and/or business risks at the program level as well as at the individual investigator level. As a result of our audits, CIS has identified areas where policies and procedures must be improved and the internal control environment made more stringent; resolved issues of noncompliance with vendor contract terms; and uncovered substantial overpayments to investigators and third-party vendors used by CROs.

CIS’ subject matter experts Tim Krzeminski, Madeline Heck and Megan Doherty will host the complimentary webinar on Thursday, June 13 from 2:00-3:15pm EST. To register and submit questions in advance, visit

Registrants can download an educational paper entitled, “A Proactive Approach to CRO Management Ensures Compliance and Mitigates Risk,” that addresses the challenges of continually monitoring compliance in a landscape where regulations change often, both locally and globally.. The paper examines four key areas that will support stronger transparency and better risk management for both sponsor and vendor.
