Subrecipient: A subrecipient holds responsibility for significant programmatic activities under a UNH sponsored program. When Federal funds are passed to a subrecipient entity, that entity must adhere to all applicable Federal program compliance requirements. UNH is responsible for monitoring the subrecipient’s performance and compliance.
There are numerous ways in which private, programmatic support is offered to and received at the University of New Hampshire, including gifts, grants and contracts. Each varies in how revenue should be accepted and administered, and what the sponsor should reasonably expect to receive in return for providing support.
Recognizing that PIs are responsible for most aspects of sponsored research, including compliance with institutional policy and federal regulation, Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA), has developed a series of Sponsored Programs Administration Guidance Documents to familiarize PIs with essential administration and compliance topics. Each document will include a brief explanation of the topic, guidance on how to comply, and web links to campus resources and additional information.
