  • Also know as Subgrants, Subcontracts, Subawards
  • Subs can come IN to WKU, or they can go OUT from WKU


Incoming Subs

Some Subagreements will be coming to WKU or WKURF from another institution.  If a subagreement is coming TO us from a lead institution, it is treated like a proposal and an award.  The Office of Sponsored Programs will submit a proposal to the Lead Institution. 


Outgoing Subs

Some Subagreements will be issued by WKU or WKURF (because we are the lead institution) to another insitution from an award we have received.  If a subagreement is going OUT from us, we will collect a propsal from the potential subrecipient institution before we submit our proposal to our sponsor.  Then, if we receive the award, we will issue an award (specifically a subagreement, subgrant, subcontract) to the subrecipent institution.
