12/23/2011:Change in University Policy : Compensation to Research Subjects
Finance and Accounting has changed the requirements for payments to research subjects. These changes go into effect on 01/01/2012.
A brief summary of the two changes:
- Payments to UF employees will no longer be processed through payroll. Employees will be paid like other research subjects.
- Social Security Numbers are not required if the total payment for a study is $25 or less. NOTE: you must still collect SSN if total payment for the study is greater than $25 (e.g. three payments of $10).
The announcement reminds everyone that the following:
- Total payments of $600 or more to a subject are processed through accounts payable.
- All payments to non-resident aliens, even if they are UF employees, must still be processed through payroll
