I am working with a subrecipient on my project. What are my responsibilities?
The principal investigator is responsible for monitoring subrecipients’ performance of the work they agreed to perform. In addition, the principal investigator should review all subrecipient invoices for correct billing, including any required cost sharing. If the invoiced amount is acceptable, the PI should write “approved” on the invoice, sign and date it, and forward it to Accounts Payable on a payment voucher. The PI is also responsible for insuring the subrecipient submits all deliverables and technical reports as required under the subrecipient agreement.
