As I write my proposal to an outside sponsor, what should I request from the proposed subrecipient entity?

Proposals must have five items included for each subaward:

  • Letter of Intent (LOI) or PHS398 Face Page signed by the Authorizing Official of the subrecipient institution
  • Scope of Work (SOW), this should include background info/objectives & work to be performed
  • Budget
  • Budget Justification (BudgJust):Must tie specifically to Budget Details
  • Negotiated F&A rate agreement that validates what subrecipient entity is allowed to receive as F&A
  • This is documented in GIM 7, Preparing a Proposal that Includes Proposed Subrecipients.
