A subrecipient (or subawardee) is arranged for with a subcontract (sometimes called SubK). A subcontract provides for funds to perform part of a project as a collaborator or co-Principal Investigator. Can be either a formally-designated project in which the direct sponsor receives funds from a prime sponsor or an arrangement in which the University provides funds for performing part of a project to another organization.

- FDP Checklist to Determine Subecipient or Contractor Involvement A useful resource from Federal Demonstration Partnership to help determine Subrecipient versus Contractor involvement.
