This page is specifically about creating a proposal including a subaward. See Managing Subawards for information about projects that have moved past the proposal stage.
- If you need assistance with subaward (a portion of the work related to your project will be done by another entity), contact your Grant and Contract Officer.
- Know the difference between a subaward and a contract for services. Details available on the Proposing a Subaward page.
- The PI is responsible for opening and maintaining communication with the subrecipient. See more information about roles and responsibilities.
- Deadlines are more complicated when you are working with a subaward. Be sure you share any internal Cornell deadlines with your collaborators so you're able to collect the documentation you need in time.
When Cornell is the Subawardee
If Cornell is the recipient of a subaward, for example, collaborating on a project with another university which has received a grant from a sponsor, the project proposal from Cornell is treated the same as any other submitted to a sponsor.
Cornell may have some subawardee obligations, however, such as completing the subrecipient profile questionnaire.
