How to Request a New Subaward or Modification

  • SWiFT is accessible via JHED ID. No special permissions are required.
  • Requests for the addition of a PI to SWiFT system should be sent to Inash Pohkarel (inash@jhu.edu).
  • Requests may take several days, so please plan accordingly.  Please copy Mora Harris (mharr154@jhu.edu) on all requests.

Information Needed to Write the Subaward

Remember! Get your 96IO number and shopping cart early!

When you request a NEW subagreement you must also submit a request to Sponsored Projects Shared Services (SPSS) for creation of a 96 Internal Order (I/O) immediately. For the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Finance Office submits the 96 I/O request on your behalf utilizing the information provided in the Finance tab of the SWiFT System. All other divisions utilize the WebForm system to submit their 96 I/O requests to SPSS. You will need the 96 I/O to complete your SPPO shopping cart, which you then route to JHURA for final approval. For subagreements under non-sponsored accounts a 96 I/O is not required, a cost center is entered instead. Once JHURA fully executes the subagreement we approve your shopping cart which creates the PO number and encumbers the subagreement funding. Significant subagreement delays often result when a 96 I/O is not requested or when the department does not apply its final approval to the shopping cart.
