PhRMA guidelines are regularly reviewed by our senior management team, and we host semi-annual discussions about the latest guidelines with all members of our staff. Our clients have different interpretations about the guidelines, including what level of hotel property is suitable for their meetings. In Asia, Africa and parts of Europe, we encourage our clients to be more flexible as to whether higher-tier hotels are appropriate, simply because many properties are incapable of providing proper security or support for meetings.
Working closely with sponsors and CRO's, wethen discuss the compliance aspects of the decision to find the best value at the lowest cost.
Our clients have widely varying views about the degree of detail required for Open Payments (Sunshine) Act compliance issues, and work to achieve a balanced reporting framework that exceeds the requirements of the statute.
