Kforce Clinical Research Wins Operational Award from Merck

TAMPA, Fla. – (Sept. 10, 2008) – Kforce Clinical Research, a division of Kforce, Inc. (NASDAQ: KFRC), has won Merck & Co. Inc.’s “Outstanding Operational Award in Clinical Development” as part of Merck's 2007 Supplier Recognition Awards.  Kforce Clinical Research was one of 13 suppliers to be recognized at the pharmaceutical company’s Annual Supplier Recognition Forum at their headquarters in Whitehouse Station, N.J., on June 12.
 
Four years ago Merck established its “Plan to Win” program.  In June of this year, Merck invited 75 suppliers to the Recognition Forum where key executives discussed Merck’s critical initiatives and these suppliers’ role in helping Merck achieve its Plan to Win.  Ultimately, 13 suppliers were identified for their accomplishments in this initiative.
 
Kforce Clinical Research provides customized and flexible functional outsourcing solutions to the biopharmaceutical industry. It specializes in clinical monitoring, site and study management, drug safety, clinical data management, data entry, clinical programming and biostatistics. Where as other outsourcing providers either augment a company’s drug trial with people or handle all aspects of the trial, Kforce’s functional outsourcing model offers a flexible, tailored approach developed to mirror each company’s business model and address specific requirements of the drug trial itself.
