Initiating Subawards

Subaward agreements are initiated by the PI through DSP.  The Outgoing Subaward Roles and Responsibilities provides a general overview as well as subaward checklists, forms, and further reading, including Initiating a Subaward.

DSP offers information on amending or modifying an existing subaward agreement.

Once a subaward agreement is finalized, Accounts Payable assigns the Purchase Order (PO) number.  The PO is set up using University Institutional Account (IAcct) numbers 6230 or 6231.  These are the only valid IAcct numbers for subawards.  PO's set up under other IAccts are not subawards and should not be sent to GAO for approval.
