Subawards that pay outside/third parties to conduct a substantive portion of the work on an externally-funded project are jointly developed by the Principal Investigator and the ORSP. At the proposal stage, information about the subaward is gathered via the Subrecipient Commitment Form. In addition, the subaward statement of work and budget are typically included as part of the grant application. After the project is funded, contact Angie Morelock when you are ready to implement the subaward. Subawards are entered into ESM by the PI’s department (instead of being entered into Cayuse) and ORSP will work with the PI and the department throughout the subaward origination process.
Subawards also require PI and departmental oversight to ensure the project is being conducted in accordance with both federal and university policies. To help with that process, ORSP has developed the PI Guidance for Subaward Monitoring Checklist.
The contract approval process for awards is routed through Cayuse. For more information on Cayuse, please check out our help page or contact ORSP!
Please note only certain individuals (the Chancellor or Vice Chancellor) have authority to sign contracts for the university. No one else may sign!
