Subawards

The Subrecipient (SR) Commitment Form is required when a proposal is being submitted that includes a subcontract/subrecipient. The form provides information from the SR that is needed at the proposal stage and at the time of award. Without the form and the required documents, the SR cannot be paid by UT when the project is funded. The form needs to be uploaded into PAMS before the proposal is routed for review.

When completing the Subrecipient Commitment Form, the UT PI/Department/OSP should complete the first portion (Project Information) before sending the form to the SR.
