What Is a Subaward?

A subaward (also known as a subagreement or subcontract) is an agreement issued by JHU under its Prime Award to another organization, setting forth the terms and conditions whereby the subrecipient will assist JHU by performing a significant programmatic aspect of the overall project. The subaward process begins when a grant, cooperative agreement, or contract is issued to JHU from a sponsor for the purpose of completing a project/research study within a certain period of time with a set amount of funding (“Prime Award”).
