Subawards

Subawards (also known as subcontracts, transfers of funds, inter-institutional agreements, etc.) transfer a portion of the awarded research funding from the Lead Institution to the Collaborating Institution/sub-recipient.

Outgoing

In cases where Carleton is the Lead Institution (e.g., a Carleton professor is the grant/contract holder), a Subaward Agreement will have to be executed through the Research Office before any payments to the Collaborating Institution can be processed.

In order to streamline the subaward process, all requests for subaward agreements will now be made through cuResearch. For detailed steps on how to do this, please consult the Requesting a Subaward document.

Incoming

In cases where Carleton is the sub-recipient, a Subaward Agreement will have to be executed through the Lead Institution’s research office before they are able to release Carleton’s portion of the project funds.

The Subaward Agreement should be sent directly to CORIS for review and signature. Should you receive this document from the PI/PI’s research office, please forward it along to the appropriate Research Office representative:
