Launching multi-center clinical research studies is complicated and can take many months. A major rate-limiting step to study initiation is the review and negotiation process for various agreements/contracts. Network Standard Agreement services facilitate a streamlined contracting process through the use of the Trial Innovation Network FDP-CTSA Standard Agreement. The Network FDP-CTSA (Clinical Trials Sub-award Agreement) was developed with the goal of harmonization with similar agreements and prepared in collaboration with the CTSA Hubs and the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP). Furthermore, Network Standard Agreement services seek to innovate to promote more efficient study start up. Examples of such innovations include the Network Umbrella Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) for facilitating rapid exchange of information, across sites, to support Network studies and the Standard Agreement Toolkit which, includes templates for non-interventional clinical research and a CDA template for specific use with VA sites.
