Hours: 40 hours a week


Our client is looking for a TMF SME to help conduct file reviews. These TMF’s are from their CRO’s and sponsor. This is not a TMF audit so auditing is not required, but would be a plus due to this being a part of their Inspection Readiness project. They need this person to be independent and someone who is nimble to technology. Their system is “clunky” (Veeva) and so that will slow someone down who is not technically savvy. This person will not be auditing the TMF’s, but if they have audited in the past that would be a plus. This is a due diligence process and they need someone doing cross reviews from one document to another so that the documents should be in there by cross reference. Anyone with health review language would be helpful. Oncology or Rare Disease is a must (Oncology preferred over Rare.)

Perform a comprehensive and thorough review of the study/site trial master files (TMF) via quality content review, cross-referencing, and completeness review; including confirmation that the content collectively provides an accurate reconstruction of the trial.
