NIH Awards Quality Assurance Contract

March 2015

We have been re-awarded a 10-year support contract with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). Our scientists evaluate National Toxicology Program (NTP) study reports to determine their accuracy, completeness, internal consistency, and compliance with NTP and Federal Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) guidelines. For each review, we prepare an audit report using standardized formats and summarize the materials and audit methods used, note any discrepancies between information in the study report and data in the original study records, and interpret and communicate audit findings. Since 1985, CSS has generated more than 1300 audit reports encompassing pre-chronic toxicity and chronic/carcinogenicity studies of approximately 600 chemicals.
