requires considerable discretion and the unique expertise of the subcontractor in carrying out the research project A research project may include relationships with contractors, consultants and subcontractors. The Passe-Through unit is responsible for deciding whether a particular agreement constitutes subcontracting (the implementation of an intellectually important part of the federal price, the creation of a financial support agreement) or a contract of contractor (purchase of goods and services, establishment of a purchase contract). As a general rule, the University of Iowa does not issue individual or individual identity cards. The university recommends that, as part of cooperation with an individual individual or contractor, the agreement be treated as a professional service agreement through the IU`s purchasing department. The subcontractor: under 2 CFR 200.92 means the Single Guide, Subaward a bonus granted by a pass-through company to a sub-recipient for the realization of part of a federal award that the company passes-through receives. It does not include payments to a contractor or payments to a recipient of a federal program. A subcontract can be granted by any form of legal agreement, including an agreement that treats the pass-through company as a contract. The fee for service arrangements is paid through the IU`s purchasing service. Here are the characteristics of a contractor/fee for the service order. Contractor organization: The FDP checklist reference tool for determining subrecipient or contractorary classification provides instructions to determine this provision. A contractor provides goods or services in normal business activities and operates in a competitive environment offering similar goods and services to a large number of customers.
It is IP`s initial responsibility to ensure that costs are properly categorized when submitting a proposal to the proponent. The IP must ensure that sufficient information about the proposed agreement is shared with the department administrator and the Sponsored Programs Department (DSP). PNs and department administrators are asked to consult DSP prior to the expiry date of a proposal when they have questions about the appropriate classification of costs. Responsibility for programmatic decision-making in a competitive environment (i.e., competing with others who may offer a similar service) is essential to determining appropriate relationships at the proposal stage to ensure cost accounting and compliance requirements. Poor classification can lead to delays in processing subseras, an imprecise calculation of costs (for example. B, non-inclusion or exclusion of research and development costs) and the timing of requesting permission to modify the project. Auditors would be considered co-editors of publications resulting from the work carried out under the main prize, which provide, through financing, to many different buyers of similar goods or services who use funds for the implementation of a public program defined in the enabling status; in relation to the provision of goods or services for the benefit of the passport unit, a routine service (for example. B manufacturing or repairing equipment, processing data, performing routine analytical audit services, etc.) provides goods or services as part of their normal activities regardless of the type of service, since both departments are part of the same corporation, the University of Iowa.
