Increased HSD Fee for Clinical Trials

Aug 3, 2010 at 8:52am

Affects:   All industry-initiated clinical trials

Effective date:   All contracts completed on or after September 1, 2010

The fee charged by HSD to sponsors of industry-initiated clinical trials is increasing from $1000 to $1500.  Since 2003, HSD has charged a $1000 fee to help cover HSD's costs for fulfilling mandatory regulatory and administrative responsibilities that HSD retains regardless of where the IRB review occurs.  This fee has remained unchanged until now, though HSD responsibilities and expenses have increased.   The background and rationale for this increase is provided in a one-page News Release: Increased Fee.
