Subawards (Outgoing)

A subaward is a contract or legal agreement between an organization receiving a grant or contract and another organization that will perform research or other substantive work. A subaward is not an agreement for the procurement or purchase of routine goods or services. A subaward is written under the authority of the prime award and specifies the terms and conditions under which the parties will engage in the work.
