Sub Recipient Monitoring
Compliance Federal regulations require that award recipients monitor the financial status of all subrecipients at least annually. When setting up an account that includes a subrecipient, data regarding the subrecipient is added to a database to track audit compliance.
Overview Please see the Subrecipient Monitoring Procedures for details on the process implemented to be in compliance with OMB A-133. Monitoring begins even before an award is made and ends at closeout. The procedures through the life of the award are summarized below.
Pre-Award ORA will collect an initial Subrecipient Audit Certification (DOC) and an assessment will be performed to determine whether or not the proposed subrecipient is a high-risk entity. The PI will be notified of the decision to award or not award, based on the assessment.
Post-Award Throughout the life of the award, CSM will continue monitoring performance and compliance. A request for an Annual Audit Certification (DOC) letter - and second and third requests, if necessary -  will be sent to all subrecipients. Their responses will be reviewed and evaluated to determine continuation or alteration of established terms.
Closeout ORA will review the subaward history to determine that funds were utilized in accordance with the terms of the subcontract and federal regulations.
Tracking Monitoring of subrecipients will be tracked in a stand-alone database and in Cayuse; outgoing subcontracts that are created in Cayuse automatically have relevant info added to the primary project.
