Re: Subject reimbursement kathleen sobieralski 27 May 1998 15:05 EST


At the University of Notre Dame individual receipts
are obtained with the signatures of the recipients.
(The signatures are generally illegible).  The receipts
are submitted with a request for reimbursement or to
account for funds advanced for subject fees.  A log might
be used as an alternative to the receipts.  The names
are not printed or otherwise identified.

The actual identities of the subjects are kept only in the
program files of the principal investigator.  Accounting
knows they are available for there in case of audit but
relies on the program description, event notices and the
receipts or receipt log.
