Functional Service

Orbis Clinical promotes a customer-focused approach with several points of contact for our Functional Service Provider (FSP) engagements. We start by exploring and dissecting the sponsor’s goals and objectives to ensure our solution addresses every aspect. Our team then works closely with the sponsor stakeholders to design and customize a program that exceeds expectations.

Our FSP Services

We aim to demonstrate a holistic and flexible approach to the Orbis Clinical FSP service offering, which combines the best tools and practices with the best people. From in-house clinical systems and infrastructure expertise to internal Subject Matter Experts, and world-class resourcing solutions, Orbis Clinical will leverage years of experience and an arsenal of tools to ensure FSP engagement success.


Consistent oversight of outsourced labor in a clinical study can become unsustainable when it shifts leaders’ focus away from leading. If increasing volume in outsourced labor is causing a strain on your organization’s internal resources, the Orbis Clinical FSP model is for you.

With less contracted vendor relationships to manage, and a model that scales to match your service needs, the Orbis Clinical FSP team is an extension of your own internal team - without the day-to-day management.

How FSP Works

The model is extremely flexible, with benefits to the Sponsor, Supplier, and team members.

In a typical FSP engagement, the Sponsor provides guidance over daily operational efforts, while Orbis Clinical oversees all administrative aspects and coordinates team communication as appropriate. In addition, we find engagements are most successful when an individual on the team is identified as a Lead, who then becomes the operational point of contact to the sponsor.

Your FSP Team

The “Business Team” assigned to this FSP engagement consists of three individuals:

VP of Sales - Primary Point of Contact for the Orbis Clinical FSP engagement

Business Development Manager - Responsible for all resourcing efforts required by the FSP, and/or by client directly (when outside the scope of the FSP engagement)

Director of FSP Services – Attached to both the Business and Operational teams, the Director of FSP Services is the primary liaison between these groups and coordinates with VP of Sales, to ensure thorough communication back to the sponsor

Why Orbis Clinical

So why Orbis Clinical? Simply put, because our roots are in staffing, with a deep emphasis on clinical and biometrics. It’s our heritage and may very well be our greatest strength! Since it is well-known to the industry that the most difficult challenge with any FSP engagement is identifying, screening, hiring and retaining the right talent, it follows that the most successful partner will be the one most capable in this space. Our FSP division mirrors this narrow focus by design and leverages the expansive reach of our Consulting Group combined with our Executive Search and Full-Time Placement Group, to quickly and efficiently build and maintain hi-quality teams for our clients. Add in our Director of FSP Services and internal Subject Matter Experts,we think it becomes clear what sets Orbis Clinical apart.

I highly recommend Orbis Clinical to any organization looking to identify a high-quality and responsive FSP partner.
FSP Client
Orbis Clinical's FSP solution has been and continues to be a great success within our organization. From the very beginning, and in spite of last-minute changes in scope and size of the engagement, Orbis seamlessly integrated and quickly became a natural extension to our internal teams. We continue to work with Orbis today for our FSP needs, as well as on-demand CDISC consulting.
