In most cases, if a subaward is included in the original grant application, approved in the budget and award by the sponsor, then competitive bidding policies will not apply. Terms and conditions of the prime award to ECU will be passed to the subrecipient in the subaward documents.
Subawards cannot be executed until OSP has received and processed the prime award to the ECU PI. OSP cannot issue subawards against a Financial Guarantee account.
Incomplete checklists will be returned to the sender for completion.
The Subaward Checklist will be retained in RAMSeS for future use and reference.Subaward Checklist
Changes to the subaward must be made in writing via a subaward modification.

The ECU PI must complete the Subaward Modification Checklist and submit it to the OSP Grant Officer via email.
The subgrantee is responsible for invoicing in accordance with the terms of the subaward. The ECU PI is responsible to sign each invoice. The PI signature certifies that the expenses invoiced are allowable and in accordance with the scope of work and approval of the work completed to date. If there is any concern about the invoice or the work product or progress on the project by the subgrantee, the PI should NOT sign the invoice. The PI should contact the OGC accountant or the OSP Grant Officer for guidance. ECU may withhold payment of the final invoice until all reports have been submitted by the subgrantee.
