Ten Ways to Control Compliance Costs.
Williamsburg, Virginia (PRWEB) December 13, 2006
Cerulean Associates LLC announces its new booklet: "Ten Ways to Control Compliance Costs." Designed originally for life science firms, biotechnology organizations and pharmaceutical companies dealing with FDA compliance, the booklet's ten practical techniques are easily adapted to organizations trying to lower the cost of HIPAA compliance, the cost of SEC compliance, as well as DEA compliance, OSHA compliance and EPA compliance. Covering tips on how to get the most from laboratory equipment vendors to IT outsourcing providers, the booklet is based upon the author's fifteen years of experience learning and struggling with balancing regulatory compliance and bottom line profits.
"A lot of the plain language in the booklet comes out of my work with Chief Financial Officers (CFO)," said the author, John Avellanet. "Often stuck between an executive board that wants results for its investments and then a Chief Information Officer (CIO) whose own organization is still struggling to figure out what the regulations mean for how IT compliance is supposed to work, the CFO is left to listen to just so many strident voices with no real practical answers. This booklet gives them ten realistic activities that will control compliance costs and improve compliance overall. At bare minimum, this is all a CFO or CIO would need to make enormous progress, defining an objective, an appropriate scope and getting at least 30-50% of that scope done in 60 days."
By helping its readers make better use of the resources, technology and tools they already have, the booklet reinforces Cerulean's low-cost, high-impact approach to regulatory compliance.
The booklet's tips are framed around what Mr. Avellanet believes are some of the fundamental rules for cost-effective compliance: "think for the long-term, tackle multiple fronts in parallel, resist temptation for magic bullets, know the risk level you and your shareholders will tolerate, and do not throw good money after bad."
The free booklet is available through the Cerulean website Resource Library or by calling Cerulean directly at +1.757.645.2864 from 9-5 Monday through Friday, EST (US).
