If a proposal includes a subcontract, the following documents are required from the subcontractor:
- Statement of work
- Budget justification
- Letter of intent endorsed by organizational official
The Weinberg Subcontract Checklist can be sent to subcontractors for gathering the necessary information.
These documents should be compiled into a single pdf document and uploaded in the internal documents tab in InfoEd. Because the subcontract materials must be incorporated into the overall proposal submitted by Northwestern University, it is advisable to require that the materials are submitted a week or more in advance of the published sponsor deadline.
For additional guidance, please view NURAP's presentation on determining consultants vs. subcontractors, or view OSR's new minicourse on Subrecipient vs. Subcontractors.
Please see the subcontract invoice and subcontract requisition checklists for managing awards with subcontracts.Back to top
