How the Diligent Qualification Platform works for Trial Sponsors
Reduce your risks and save resources and time while qualifying your clinical trial providers
The Diligent Qualification Platform is designed to speed and simplify the assessment of GCP service and technology providers, making it easier and faster for sponsors to identify the risks of working with different trial providers
Easy and quick access to provider information
The Diligent Platform offers access to standardized Request For Information (RFI) or qualification questionnaire details and Vendor Qualification Assessment (VQA) reports for trial providers.
This information in RFIs and VQAs is collected from trial providers against the detailed, industry-leading standards of the WCG Avoca Quality Consortium.
Our RFIs are comprehensive and cover over 28 clinical trial services, including data management, biostatistics, eClinical and mobile technologies- see them all here. We also have a core RFI completed by all service and technology providers. At the moment, we have over 350 completed RFIs on the platform, ready for you to access on-demand.
Benefits of Diligent’s RFI service
If the RFI you’re looking for is not currently on the platform, you can request for this to be added and Diligent will take care of it. We will:
- Send out the right questionnaires to the clinical trial provider (you have the ability to add questions of your own)
- Chase progress and review for completeness
- Provide you with ready to use data that you can view in a side by side analysis with other providers on the platform
- At request, apply a risk scoring profile for the provider, specific to your needs

Benefits of Diligent’s VQA service
Our VQA reports make it easier and quicker for your team to work with independent quality assessments of service or technology providers, prepared by expert Diligent quality auditors.
When a Provider is assessed by Diligent, the auditor’s VQA report is uploaded to the Platform where trial Sponsors that subscribe to Diligent can request access to it. The associated Provider is then notified via email and can add comments (for example, details of recent process improvements) before releasing the report.
So instead of waiting 2-3 months for a finalized auditor’s report, we can deliver it to you in just 2-3 days! We already have 85 VQA reports completed or in process.
If there is a specific vendor qualification assessment you need and it is not in our library, we will:
- Schedule a meeting with your team to determine requirements
- Select the auditor with the right experience and share the CV with you
- Schedule the audit and conduct it as quickly as possible
If we have a VQA planned or in progress with a provider that you want to qualify, you can join our assessment – saving you time and cost.
