USDM Life Science Consulting Business Models

We offer comprehensive GxP technology, regulatory compliance, and quality management services delivered in the business model of your choice – staff augmentation, managed staffing, consulting/professional services, and managed services.

  • USDM’s staff augmentation model ensures you get the best possible resources in the industry. We have the knowledge, candidate pool, and sourcing power to staff accordingly and work diligently to identify and retain the top talent in the industry.
  • Our managed staffing model enables you to select your team or turn over management of an existing team and use your internal systems while USDM handles the overhead and supervision of the team. Your dedicated team lead will address all the team members’ needs, issues and concerns, acting as an extension of your team so you don’t have to worry about day-to-day administrative tasks and can focus on more strategic priorities.
  • Our consulting and professional services model is ideal for clearly defined projects with a scope, timeline and budget. With this traditional consulting engagement and defined service level agreements (SLAs), you can rest assured that your project will be completed on time and on budget with mutually agreed-upon deliverables to support your objectives.
  • Our managed services model is a strategic partnership that incorporates cost savings and risk reduction by managing your end-to-end compliance process to run the business so you can focus on other priorities. Designed for one IT system or many IT systems, we will take care of everything: hiring and managed the team, building the processes and procedures and delivering results.
