Manage Subrecipients

Note: you must have the OSP Subcontracts ASTRA role to use this tool.  The tool still refers to subcontracts, so that term will be used in this article.

You can search for subcontractor by Name, Country, Type, Status, or any combination of values.

When you search by Name, the system will return any subcontractor whose name contains the characters you enter. For example, searching for “seatt” or “ttl” or “seattle” will find subcontractors with Seattle in their name.
