Subaward and Subaward Request Statuses

Subaward Statuses

When campus creates a new subaward, the Subaward and Subaward Request statuses will be the same from Composing through Active as you review and process the request. Once the subaward reaches Active status, the status of subsequent modification requests will be independent of the overall subaward’s status.

The system will automatically change the subaward’s status to Expired when the End Date is in the past. If a new modification is approved, the subaward status will be changed to Active once again.

OSP can change a subaward’s status as follows:

From To Effect on Requests
In OSP, OSP Assigned, or Issued Canceled, if there are no requests in Active or Expired status If there is only a New request with a matching status, then the request will be Canceled.
Expired Active No change to requests
Expired Closed Out No change to requests
Close Out Active or Expired No change to requests
Canceled In OSP, OSP Assigned, or Issued No change to requests

Subaward Request Statuses

A Subaward Request will have one of the following statuses.

Status Description
Composing Campus created an initial request or modification request, but hasn’t yet submitted it to OSP. Campus can delete a requests in Composing status.
In OSP Campus has submitted the request to OSP for review; the system assigns the request to Subaward Intake initially. Campus can cancel or withdraw a request in this status. OSP can return the request.
Withdrawn Campus pulled the request back for changes. Campus can only withdraw requests in status In OSP. Once withdrawn, campus could cancel the request.
Returned OSP had returned the request to campus for changes. You can return a request in either In OSP or OSP Assigned status. Once returned, campus could cancel the request.

The system sends an email notification about the returned request to the Subaward Preparer.

OSP Assigned OSP has assigned a staff member to review the request.
Issued OSP has issued the agreement to the Subrecipient.
Canceled Either campus or OPS decided not to continue processing the request. You may cancel a New or Modification subaward request that is in a status of Returned, Withdrawn, or In OSP.

If the subaward has only a New request, then the system will also change the subaward’s status to Canceled.

Active This indicates a fully-executed request.
Expired The system will automatically change a Subaward request’s status to Expired once its end date is in the past.
Closed Out (Subaward only) The subrecipient has completed the Subaward and OSP has changed the status to reflect that. The status for the subaward’s requests will remain unchanged when OSP changes the subaward to Closed Out.
