A subaward is the portion of a UW grant which a different institution will complete.

For example, NIOSH awards the UW $5,000,000 for a project, and UW sends $20,974 to Northern Illinois University to do a portion of the project.  A purchase order/contract request (BPO/CR) provides payment to the outside institution.

The campus research team originates both new subaward requests and modification requests. The Subawards Group within OSP then manages the requests.

You must have the OSP Subcontracts ASTRA role in order to unlock and work with subawards in SPAERC.
