Management Consulting

Riparian’s government price reporting consulting practice helps businesses in the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry comply with complex regulations

Changing regulations within the government price reporting sector can create uncertainty, leading to non-compliance and costly settlements. Our team helps clients maintain compliance while offering strategic advice to inform current and future business decisions.

We understand that regulatory compliance is rarely controlled by a single business function and requires a holistic approach.  For example, government pricing teams often face difficulty when processing bundled sales if (1) they lack the appropriate training, (2) the commercial sales team is acting independently, (3) legal has not clearly defined a bundled sale arrangement, (4) IT has not enhanced the contracting/reporting systems to process bundled sale arrangements correctly, or a host of other factors.  We specialize in solving these challenges and collaborating with different internal and external teams.
