The purpose of this internal guidance document is to clarify and outline the process for SOM Research Administration Shared Services (SOMRAS) Staff, with regard to the payment of research subject stipends through the RealSource One-Time-Payment form.

REMEMBER: If a sponsor or any other outside VCU entity or individual requests information related to research subject stipends or payments, always remove subject names, SSNs, or any other identifying information other than sponsor identifier numbers before sending the information outside of VCU.
