Question re: one contract, many protocols Bredemeyer, Heidi K 22 Nov 2002 10:15 EST

Hello all,

I am working on a subcontract from an oncology group that would allow our institution to participate in multiple protocols.  However, the contract does not specifically identify the protocols.  Instead, if the subcontract is signed, our investigator may opt to participate in any of the sponsor's active protocols any time during the performance period without amendment to the subcontract, addition of task orders, or any acknowledgment by the sponsor that we are enrolling patients on specific protocols.

I would like to find a way to make this arrangement work, but I have concerns about the scope of work and monitoring payments.  The subcontract involves NIH pass-through funds, so I have concerns about record keeping too.  On the other hand, the sponsor says that it has a streamlined process with about 300 institutions already on board and it doesn't want to make exceptions for one site.

Any input on negotiating appropriate contract revisions or administering this type of an agreement would be greatly appreciated.  Feel free to contact me directly if you do not wish to respond to the entire list.

Thanks much,
