The continued global expansion of the HPS business requires that a resource be dedicated to writing and reviewing the technical reports that result from each validation project. Currently, many of the reports are outsourced to external consultants to write, but this model is effecting the ability of HPS team to get reports out in a timely fashion. Having an internal person focused exclusively on this element of the projects will result in faster turnaround times, greater consistency among the reports, and cost reduction relating to less outsourcing.
