Hi Rob!

Hmm... this is a very intriguing topic! I've personally never been on a project where the SMEs were paid, because the projects I've worked on has used SMEs who were already employees of the organization. 

I'd venture a guess that it's different for each situation and probably has something to do with the hourly rate the person charges for a living. So, a career or professional who makes a lot of money would cost more to be a SME, because their professional time is more "valuable". Just my two cents... I'd love to hear from others on this as well. Thanks for bringing up this very interesting topic!
