Human subjects often are paid a fee for their participation in research projects. Protocols for the use of human beings in research, teaching, or testing are reviewed and approved, according to federal, state and university policies. (See: Human Research Protection Program). For payment policies and details on paying subjects, see Standard Practice Guide 501.7-1. Also see the University's Human Subject Incentive Program (HSIP) at http://www.finance.umich.edu/treasury/hsip or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Routine or commercial testing is a type of "Other Sponsored Activity." It generally involves repetitive, quantitative, non-experimental measurements under physically controlled conditions for which the data produced are expected to be within a pre-determined range of values or of reproducibility. University researchers may choose to conduct some testing if certain conditions apply.

For the agencies that have adopted them, RTCs provide a common set of rules for implementing the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR 200) issued by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
These RTCs are maintained on the National Science Foundation (NSF) website:
Sponsored Awards on the Web. Web search for sponsored awards. Data is drawn from the eRPM data set (replaced PRISM).
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program was established by Congress in 1982. It is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in federal research and development that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.
The Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) was established in 1992. The unique feature of the STTR program is the requirement for the small business to formally collaborate with a research institution in Phase I and Phase II.
Several federal agencies participate in the SBIR/STTR programs and are required to set aside a percentage of their extramural budget so that domestic small businesses can engage in R&D that has a strong potential for technology commercialization.
Some sponsors (e.g., NIH) require a single IRB-of-record (sIRB) for multi-site (multi-institutional) human subject studies. An external (i.e., non-UM) IRB may serve as the single IRB for all participating sites. See IRBMED’s Central IRB Information website for a list of commercial IRBs with whom U-M has a service agreement.
- Commercial IRB Guidance Link to IRBMED's Central IRB Information (External IRBs) webpage. This webpage includes "Working With" guidance documents for each of the commercial IRBs with which U-M or Michigan Medicine has a master agreement.
- External sIRB Fee Schedule Depicts a sample budget worksheet outlining the fees for services that may be charged by an external (e.g., commercial) institutional review board (IRB) when that IRB is serving as the single IRB-of-record (sIRB) for a multi-site non-exempt human subjects project.

The Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP) makes use of the federal-wide Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR). The RPPR process requires that progress report submissions begin 45 days prior to the budget start date.
