Human Subject Payments

The Human Subject Payments system is a myUFL module that enables researchers or their study team members to request payments for research participants (such as prepaid Visa debit cards, gift cards, cash), and provides a secure method of recording those payments. To learn more, please explore this website and watch this brief introductory tutorial (Please note: This video does not load in the Chrome browser.

Anyone who pays research participants (other than in-kind payments or Mechanical Turk payments) will need to use the HSP system effective July 14, 2014.  Benefits of the HSP system include:

  • A central location for obtaining all cash and cash equivalent type payments for your participants
  • A secure database to house payment and participant information, reducing or eliminating data that departments must store
  • Elimination of the need to accumulate and transmit payment information to Accounts Payable at the calendar year-end
  • Quick turnaround on payment requests
  • Improved compliance by the University for required reporting
  • The ability to return unused cards to Treasury Management for a refund in certain circumstances

For more information, please contact Treasury Management’s HSP team either by email,, or by phone at (352) 392-9057.
