This presentation will discuss when to use a subcontract in your research and then walk through the lifecycle of a subcontract at UW - utilizing Purchasing, subcontract documents, invoicing and payments. Case studies will demonstrate some problems that can be mitigated by having good monitoring controls as part of your internal processes. The Internal Audit portion of this session will review the types of auditors and types of audits, what to do when the auditor calls, and tips for PIs for performing basic control activities.
