Research Subject Payments

Payment of Research Subjects at GUMC can occur through one of three mechanisms at GUMC:  cash, gift card or check.  For general information on research payments, please refer to the payment policy below.  For information on requesting gift cards for your research participants, please refer to the GUMC Gift Card and Administration Policy located on the GUMC ProCard and Procurement page.  For information on requesting a check from the
Clinical Research Operations Office. 

At Risk Cost Centers

The At Risk Cost Center process uses Box. Please see User Guide – Tasking Via Box for details.

GUMC ASA, Lump Sum and PSA Requests

MedStar employees support research and educational efforts across GUMC.  We currently have two mechanisms to compensate MedStar for that effort — an Administrative Services Agreement (ASA) and a Personal Services Agreement (PSA). The ASA mechanism is used when payment will be charged to institutional worktags (e.g. departmental funds or gifts). The PSA mechanism is used when payment will be charged to grant worktags (e.g. GR123456).  

To request payment using one of these mechanisms, please download the relevant form below, and follow the instructions for submission.
