A subaward is also referred to as a subcontract or consortium/contractual arrangements.

If LRI will be the prime recipient of the grant award and will be issuing a subaward to another institution:
Gathering the necessary paperwork and signatures can take a number of weeks depending on the institution you are collaborating with. Make sure you alert the Grants Specialist (Joanne: firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon you are able that this will be needed.
Documents needed from the external institution are as follows:
- Completed & signed Subrecipient Certifications and Statement of Intent form
- Budget (we always require a detailed budget sheet, even if using the modular type in the application)
- Detailed Budget Justification or Modular Budget Justification
- Biosketches for Key Personnel and Other Significant Contributors
- Scope/Statement of Work
- Vertebrate Animals (if applicable)
- Human Subjects (if applicable)
- Letter(s) of support
If the application receives a fundable score then Other Support documents will be needed for all Key Personnel.
A formal subaward agreement will be completed with the external institution if a Notice of Award is received.
If an external institute will be the prime recipient of the grant award and will be issuing a subaward to LRI:
The external institution may have their own paperwork that needs completing. Please ask them to contact email@example.com to start the process.
At LRI we can generally get the signatures needed and gather all necessary paperwork within a few days, but this may vary depending on workload at the time of the request.
As well as issuing a Letter of Intent, documents 2 through 10 of the above list will be needed for our part on the project.
