The article presents the common budget missteps committed by clinical trial (CT) sites, and offers proactive measures to counter the same. It highlights a list of work to be carried out before a site enrolls subjects for a new study, with inputs from Valera Bussell, CCRC, CCRA, partner/senior clinical research associate at Clinical Research Trial Specialists (CRTS) in Parrish, Florida. It is suggested that CT sites should make their own budget, and save study cost electronically.
