A colleague at another University wants to include me in a proposal as a subawardee. What is required?

We treat subaward proposals the same as any other proposal. Even though the prime proposal will not be submitted by Columbia University, institutional sign off is still required and SPA will need five business days for review.

Meet with your OSP representative as you would with any other proposal. At a minimum, you will need to develop a scope of work, budget and justification for the activities that will take place at Columbia University. You will likely also need to submit a biosketch. The prime institution may request our facilities and resources page or other documents.

In addition, if the prime institution does not have specific forms to demonstrate institutional sign-off, we will be required to complete the facepage found on the SPA website.
