The PDA Midwest Chapter is pleased to announce our next event.  Join us on June 9th for an hour long  webinar that will discuss selecting and managing your network of CDMOs and Key Suppliers from the perspective of a virtual pharma or biotech. Bill will talk about the priorities to consider when determining which CDMOs and Supply Chain partners to consider for the RFP process and which ones will work best for your company.  He will also discuss the importance of Quality and Compliance in the selection process as well as providing a template for successful management of your CMOs.   Bill uses a real world example of a virtual pharma with a global CMO network.  What is the Quality Checklist to use?   What are the important KPIs to measure the critical performance factors?   Bill will help explore the questions of what and how to measure CMO performance, how to successfully manage the CMO and how to build a meaningful relationship by becoming an important customer.   Also, if the CMO performance is falling below an acceptable level when and how to take action and what actions are going to be effective.   How do you know when it is time to replace your current CDMO?   Bill will explore all of these issues and help answer these critical questions in the discussion.
