Amendment to Subaward Agreements

In most cases, the terms and conditions of a subaward will remain unchanged for the duration of the subaward. However, during the term of a subaward, it may be necessary to change or modify one or more of the terms and conditions of the subaward.

Amendments to the subaward, such as time extensions, rebudgeting or fund changes are accomplished by an amendment to the subaward.

Some changes, such as scope of work or PI may require sponsor approval before an amendment can be issued.

Requests for changes should be submitted by the subrecipient's authorized official to the unit administrator and have the approval of the Cornell PI.

The request to change the subaward must then be submitted to OSP via the Sponsored Projects Portal.

The GCO will request sponsor approval for the change if necessary and draft the amendment to the subaward. When amending a subaward, the GCO will identify the specific change by referencing the old and the amended text and will indicate that, except for the specific changes identified, "all other terms and conditions of the original subaward remain unchanged."

Note: If there is a change in the total estimated cost, a revised budget must be incorporated with the amendment.
