Contract Development and Manufacturing Outsourcing Models


It is no surprise that with only one-third of pharmaceutical manufacturing conducted in house, the practice of outsourcing manufacturing activities has evolved over the past 25 years and continues to do so. ISR’s Contract Development and Manufacturing Outsourcing Models report takes an in-depth look at current outsourcing practices among drug innovators to gain insight into the adoption and application of different outsourcing strategies. This report explores how sponsor organizations use contract manufacturers through various outsourcing models, including Tactical or Transactional Outsourcing, Preferred Providers and Strategic Partnerships to streamline costs, better manage capacity, improve efficiencies and decrease time to market.
