Is federal funding considered a sponsored program?
Various factors determine whether federal funding is considered a sponsored program. Federal funding considered a sponsored program must route to OSP via an eGC1 in SAGE.
- The funding must be considered a federal award (2 CFR Part 200.38) which is defined as funding directly from a federal awarding agency or indirectly from a pass-through entity and is Federal financial assistance, or, a cost reimbursement contract under the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR);
- The activity(s) funded is organized research, instruction, or other sponsored activity (OSA). See other sponsored program indicators.
- If federal flow-through, the pass-through entity has made the determination that UW has met the specific requirements to be considered a subrecipient (2 CFR Part 200.331).
Federal procurement contracts or other funding mechanisms used to purchase goods and services from the UW are not considered federal awards.
