OCP FY 2006 Intercenter Consultation Requests

The vertical stacked column graph presents the number of CBER, CDER, and CDRH intercenter consultation requests for FY 2003, FY 2004, FY 2005, and FY 2006. The scale is in increments of 50 with a range from 0 to 350. It shows that the total number of intercenter consultation requests was slightly less than 100 in FY 2003. However, it is footnoted that for FY 2003 the numbers do not represent all of FY 2003 and that FDA began data collection on April 1, 2003. Among the three centers, CDRH had the largest proportion of intercenter consultation requests during FY 2003, accounting for slightly over one-half of the total, followed by CBER and CDER, respectively, which was roughly the same proportion. During FY 2004, the total number of intercenter consultation requests more than doubled to slightly more than 200. CDRH had most of the requests with slightly over 130. Of the remaining, CDER had nearly three times the number of requests as CBER. During FY 2005, the total number of intercenter consultation requests grew to 275. CDRH had nearly three-quarters of intercenter consultation requests, followed by CBER and CDER, respectively. CBER and CDER had close to the same proportion relative to each other, with CBER having slightly more. During FY 2006, the total number of intercenter consultation requests increased to 335. Among the three centers, CDRH had the largest increase, while CDER was second, and CBER decreased by 5. CDRH continued to have the largest proportion of intercenter consultation requests during FY 2006, accounting for nearly 70 percent of the total at just above 230, followed by CDER and CBER, respectively.
