A subaward is a formal written agreement made between the University and a subrecipient organization to perform a portion of the Statement of Work under a sponsored award. Subawards that involve sponsored research are administered and monitored through ORPA and are properly distinguished from other procurement actions.
A subrecipient is a collaborating organization that has responsibility for programmatic decision-making towards the University’s Statement of Work, could develop its own intellectual property or publications, and must adhere to all applicable sponsored award compliance requirements.
- Initiation, monitoring, and closeout

There is also a handy Subaward checklist that can be printed out and kept at your desk to serve as a reminder of the requirements for proposing and awarding funds to subrecipients.
