Full-Time Equivalents (FTE)

Full-Time Equivalents (FTE) are the flexible choice for on-going development.

For development projects containing a significant degree of uncertainty, proceeding forward with an FTE program can be the optimal way to proceed.  Using this approach, contractor chemists essentially function as chemists working exclusively for a particular client.  As such, there is considerable flexibility and variability regarding specific work- synthetic, analytical, or otherwise- pursued.  Billing rates are typically either hourly, weekly, or monthly.  And, importantly, all work product generated from such an arrangement becomes part of the intellectual property owned by the client.  RCI's offer up some of the best FTE rates in the marketplace, whether for cGMP or non-GMP (non-pharmaceutical) work.
