Subcontracts

subcontract – also referred to as a “subaward” – is a formal agreement between Northwestern University (Pass-through Entity, or PTE) and a subrecipient under a sponsored program.  Most of the primary award terms and conditions will flow through to the subrecipient, particularly the regulatory requirements and obligations.  The subaward agreement will also incorporate the subrecipient’s proposed scope of work and budget.  Adjustments might be necessary if the prime award is reduced.  Incoming subawards are categorized and handled as funded agreements.  The following information applies to outgoing subawards.
