The Finance team is responsible for the financial management of daily operations of all PHRI studies. Finance works with researchers to develop budgets for grant applications and proposals; track finances throughout the conduct of the study; and generate financial reports for management and external funders. An essential component of their work is the payment to investigative sites — over 2,500 payments to over 80 countries in multiple currencies on a quarterly basis.
Specializing in the complex maze of international policies, sensitivities and national regulations, the Contracts team negotiates with various stakeholders including funding sources, investigative sites, national leader offices, study committee members and subcontractors to negotiate and prepare contracts. The team executes about 800 contracts annually in over 80 countries in many different languages.
