Sub-awards, contractual and consortium costs
Sub-award and consortium costs occur when part of the project that is conducted by an organization outside of the university. If a non-university organization, such as another institution, is conducting part of the programmatic aspects of the project, a sub-award MUST be prepared. The key elements of a sub-award include:
- Performance measured against whether the objectives of the sponsored program are met (carrying out a portion of the programmatic effort of the project).
- The subrecipient is responsible for programmatic decision making relative for their portion of the work.
The subrecipient must adhere to sponsored compliance requirements (IRB, IACUC, rebudgeting restrictions, publication, IP rights).
- Budget and budget justifications in the same format as the parent application
The subrecipient uses the sponsored funds to carry out a program of the organization as compared to providing goods and services
