As a recipient of federal funding, the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute is required to comply with the terms of OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR 200) (“Uniform Guidance”), specifically §200.331 regarding the monitoring of subrecipients on federally funded projects.

The Office of Research and Research Accounting Services have implemented a risk-based methodology to manage subrecipient agreements, beginning with the introduction of a Project Specific Form (PSF) intended to replace the Subrecipient Commitment Form (SCF). The PSF, combined with other metrics, will provide the OR with information deemed necessary to effectively monitor subrecipient relationships and maintain compliance with the updated regulations.

The ongoing monitoring of subrecipients is a shared responsibility of the Principal Investigator, the Office of Research, and Research Accounting Services. Roles and responsibilities of each party are outlined in the Policy Document.

The following guidelines have been developed to assist with dissemination of the Project Specific Form and collection of the required information:

  • Guidelines for Blumberg Investigators and Staff
  • Guidelines for Subrecipient Organizations

Please contact the Biosafety Coordinator with any questions.
