Sponsored Receivables Management (SRM)


Sponsored Receivables Management (SRM) provides post-award administrative and financial invoicing services, payment application and timely collection services for sponsored projects, clinical trials and the Academic Service Centers and Program Income facilities of the University. 

In addition, SRM works closely with various partner groups on and off campus to ensure the overall effective coordination of research management services, systems, policies and processes. We assist with ensuring that Stanford and the sponsored entity involved are both fully compliant with the terms and conditions of their agreement, including any federal regulations and requirements. SRM is also responsible for financial reporting in accordance with Stanford’s policies and procedures, GAAP, and federal regulations pertaining to billing and collections as applicable.

Where to Send Payments

Checks and any remittance advice or backup received in the department for payment on sponsored projects must be forwarded to the Sponsored Receivables Lockbox for deposit. 

Please do not mail or hand deliver checks to the OSR or SRM office. Payments are to be made payable to Stanford University and mailed to the Sponsored Receivables Lockbox address below.

Each check payment must reference:

  • the research project title

Clinical Research Invoicing System for Participants (CRISP)

CRISP is a system that supports the tracking of patient events and is currently the invoicing process for industry sponsored clinical trials only. This is an auditable system that tracks clinical trial events and is used by both the department Financial Specialist and Study Coordinators along with SRM personnel. Invoices are to be processed through CRISP prior to SRM receiving the payment. This is for both invoiceable items and patient care costs processed through Case Report Forms (CRFs).
