Issuing/Managing Subawards

When substantive programmatic work is going to be done by another institution or company (not an individual) then a subaward should be issued by the university to contract for that work.

The need to have programmatic work performed by another institution or company should ideally be determined and identified prior to your proposal submission. In the event that the need for a subaward is identified after the prime award has been issued, you must request prior approval from the sponsoring agency through the Office of Sponsored Programs. A sample request letter is on the Forms page.

Subawards to a third party cannot be issued until the prime award to the University of Idaho is fully executed and the UI budget has been set up in Banner.

The process starts when the departmental grant administrator, at the request of the principal investigator, completes a Subaward Request Form and generates a requisition (REQ) in Banner. 

The Subaward Request Form should be forwarded to the OSP Contract Review Unit, who will review and process it while the requisition is processing through the Banner approval queue.

Invoices from the subcontractor will be sent to the department financial contact for processing. Departmental processing should include confirming and having the PI date and sign that the indicated work has been completed; identifying the budget and expense code (E5171 or E5172) to be used; and forwarding the invoice to OSP (Campus Zip 3020 Attn: Wendy Kerr) for review prior to going to Accounts Payable for payment.

OSP has prepared a checklist for the things the department/PI should be monitoring during the life of the award. Download the Subaward Checklist for more information.

A Request for Subaward Amendment Form must be completed and forwarded to the OSP Contract Negotiation Unit and, if additional funding is being added then a change order must also be completed prior to the amendment being issued.
