As part of CROMSOURCE, a leading CRO,

TalentSource Life Sciences has clinical development in its corporate DNA!

We understand your challenges, and know that you need more than off-the-shelf solutions from a general staffing agency.
You need immediate and flexible support from well supported, well trained experts ready to make an immediate contribution to your work.

For a combination of development services, we will work with you to design a model that suits your specific needs for quality, geographic coverage and speed of delivery.

Creating a more flexible model is key to success for many clients. We provide project teams, tailored according to the project requirements. This model combines the seamless cooperation between TalentSource and CROMSOURCE Clinical Operations and the dedicated CROMSOURCE Team acts as an extension of your team. It offers full scalability to the clinical project team in regards to duration of resources, commitment and location. Services can be bundled together for increased flexibility in allocation of internal and/or external resources to quickly ramp-up or down. This service can be used as a transition from traditional insourcing/staff augmentation to a full FSP model as your business grows or the best of the two models of full-service outsourcing and FSP.

We find that some of our customers want the transparency, control, flexibility of an FSP, but also to benefit from the CRO knowledge and processes you get from working with a full service CRO. This coupled with the focus of the conventional full-Service Model, enables CROMSOURCE to provide the optimal solution.


With our FSP structure, our clients have a higher level of service than with traditional staffing models, providing teams of experienced staff across a specific functional area.

This approach can reduce the need for operational cover by our clients with our teams taking the responsibility of the function.

Benefits of FSP model include, cost efficiencies, streamlining processes (flexibility on use of CROMSOURCE or your SOPs), working with fewer vendors and reducing contracts and invoices.


Key benefits:

  • Scalable – FSP is completely scalable by service, geography and size
  • Flexible – FSP can be changed dynamically within the boundaries of the overall service scope to meet varying requirements
  • Control – As the client you keep ultimate control and with our dynamic, real-time reporting you can anticipate, identify and proactively avoid issues before they arise
  • Client integrated – You are not required to tie-in on a standard service level, each FSP is assembled within an individual client’s requirement to deliver their exact needs
  • Benefit – We can deliver services at a cost reduction of around 20%-30% below those delivered by fully outsourced trials
