Sub-recipient Agreements (Subcontracts and Professional Services Agreements)

ORS is responsible for preparing and executing all sub-recipient agreements on sponsored projects. When a project involves assistance external to Texas Tech, the sponsor must be informed. A sponsor is usually notified at the proposal stage of a project. It is the responsibility of the PI/PD to inform ORS at the earliest stage of negotiation with the sub recipient. No binding agreement can be made with any sub recipient on a sponsored project unless the agreement is signed by someone authorized to sign on behalf of Texas Tech. Sub recipients who complete tasks without having a fully executed agreement may not be paid, or, at best, will have their payment significantly delayed.
