Principal Investigators (PIs) are responsible for coordinating with the consortium institution(s), including instructing them on the documents required for the subcontract, and requesting that the completed, signed subcontract package be received and submitted to the Office of Research Administration (ORA) in Research Enterprise Solutions (RES) at least 5 business days prior to submission. All subcontract packages, regardless of the sponsor, are required to have the following:
- Subrecipient Commitment Form (pdf)
- Statement of Work
- Detailed Budget
**For NIH proposals, a template of the SF424 Subaward budget will need to be extracted directly from Workspace and sent to the sub-award institution to fill out in order to upload it directly to the workspace. Otherwise, the sub-award’s budget will need to be data entered.
- Detailed Budget Justification
- Additional documents will be required, depending on solicitation requirements and the sponsor. You can find a list of those additional documents for common sponsors such as National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Energy (DOE), and Department of Defense (DOD) on the sponsor specific checklists.
It is the PI’s responsibility to correctly categorize external contributors participating in a proposed project. If you are unsure of how to categorize an external contributor, please consult the video and table below.
