Subrecipient vs Vendor Agreement

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.

How to Determine if Revenue is a Gift or Sponsored Program

What’s essential?

Cost Principles

What’s essential?

In administering federally sponsored awards, UNH must comply with federal cost principles as established by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-21, "Costs Principles for Educational Institutions."*

Essentials for Project Directors / PIs
