Introduction: Fee schedules used to negotiate clinical trials budgets across the health system have historically been very different. Clinical care fees are standardized based on the hospital charge master, however administrative fees for staff time and effort have been extremely variable due to a decentralization approach. This has resulted in sub-optimal budget negotiations for clinical trials due to multiple factors: Under-estimation of costs; Lack of trained staff in each Department to review and negotiate clinical trial budgets; Hindered negotiations secondary to established precedence with sponsors.
