A subaward is a formal agreement between OREF and one or more other separate organizations referred to as subrecipients of the sponsored project.
The prime institution must submit subaward paperwork with the proposal that contains the biosketch of the sub-PI, a letter of intent endorsed by an Authorized Institutional Official that includes a scope of work (representing programmatic effort), subrecipient budget, and budget justification. The subawardee must adhere to the terms and conditions of the agreement between OREF and the prime institution; this is typically referred to as “flow-down”.
It is the responsibility of the prime institution to monitor the activities of the subrecipient, and assure that they are compliant with all OREF policies and procedures as set forth in the Letter of Agreement. The PI of the subaward must have a faculty appointment at the subrecipient institution.
