How to Draft and Use Subgrant Agreements
Webinar - Listen On-Demand or Get a CD!
The “devil is in the details” — so they say! And when it comes to subgranting of federal grant funds, that old platitude proves true again and again.
The job of fashioning a subgrant agreement that flows through the correct federal programmatic, administrative and oversight policies and procedures, as well as any supplemental requirements that a “pass-through” entity may be mandated to include, is challenging. Out of an abundance of caution and the confusing nature of many of the federal laws, circulars and regulations that affect the outcome, many subgrant agreements can match metropolitan phone directories for their heft and fine print. And, over time, some of the subgrant agreements employed by primary grantees get loaded up with new requirements but are seldom pruned to eliminate those that have been superseded or that no longer contribute to performance or accountability.

The terms and conditions of the subgrant agreement are really the driving force for everything that is supposed to happen during the performance period. When you include a provision in the document, you create a need to inform the subrecipient what it means, interpret it when there’s a question, monitor to see whether it’s being followed, enforce it when it’s not and pay the cost of all that interaction. So properly drafting these agreements and using them is fundamental to effective federal grant management.
This webinar session will present authoritative and practical instruction on how to do that. You’ll learn about:
- Use of correct terminology drawn from applicable federal policies;
- The variables affecting different types of “pass-through” entities and subrecipients;
- How to start fresh with a new award template;
- Why proper sequencing of provisions can make post-award management easier;
- Which federal policies (strings attached) must be flowed through;
- Where to obtain accurate language for terms and conditions; and
- How to make the job of future modification and improvement less daunting.
