The MCC Site Selection and Study Start-Up work group members are working to define site selection and site study start-up process metrics. In 2018, MCC released the MCC Site Contracting Metric Toolkit v1.0 that includes detailed metric descriptions and Global Start-Up Comparison Models that group countries into five models according to the impact that local regulatory and ethical approval processes have on the site contracting process. This work group will build upon the foundation established in the site contracting toolkit and examine the overall process of site selection and start-up. Our goal is to collaboratively develop standardized metrics that can be used across industry to monitor, manage and improve the process.
