  • Service providers can register to be notified of upcoming opportunities to support DVC's research and clinical trials or contact us to discuss possibilities.

How DVC Can Help

We know you can't afford to pay for a learning curve, and with DVC you don't have to. We’ve helped a client achieve FDA licensure of one of the first biodefense biologic products. We have advanced products into the clinic and managed and conducted all phases of clinical trials, including Phase 3 and overseas trials. Let us help you take your product to the next level. We can manage the whole program, or help with certain pieces. We have deep experience in the following areas:

  • Program Management - DVC's program management team has managed complex biopharmaceutical product development programs specifically for government clients since 1997. We can integrate, facilitate and coordinate all activities required to execute successful product development programs, including government specific regulations and documentation.
  • Risk Identification and Management - What is the cost of failure? Risk management can inform you… and help your program succeed. Our risk management team can help you identify what can go wrong, take steps to reduce or eliminate the probability that risks will occur, and lessen impact on your project’s quality, cost and schedule.
  • Contracts - DVC's seasoned contracts professionals specialize in government contracting. We can provide guidance regarding contract types, support negotiations and provide assistance during the proposal development process, to ensure that your proposed solutions are compatible with current Federal contractual requirements.
  • Subcontracts Management - Government contracting regulations pass from the prime contractor to subcontractors. We work with hundreds of subcontractors globally on vaccine development and other medical countermeasure development programs. We can assist our partners with subcontractor management as needed.
  • Finance - Financial reporting requirements can vary widely from agency to agency. DVC can assist you with both Department of Defense (DoD) and civil agency financial management and reporting.
