Subaward means an award provided by a pass-through entity to a subrecipient for the subrecipient to carry out part of a federal award received by the pass-through entity. It does not include payments to a contractor or payments to an individual that is a beneficiary of a Federal program.
A subaward may be provided through any form of legal agreement, including an agreement that the pass-through entity considers a contract.
Subawards are issued to entities outside of NC State when the subrecipient will collaborate with our investigator in a scholarly effort. A subrecipient must adhere to applicable federal program compliance requirements.
