[March 2, 2021] OSPA has developed a new Subrecipient Commitment Form for use when RU is the submitting institution of an application with subawards. This form will be required for all applications with deadlines of March 17 and after.  For more information and the new form, see the links below, and/or our webpage at

This new form has provided the opportunity for us to streamline processes so that the same forms are required by FDP (Federal Demonstration Partnership) and non-FDP institutions. We hope this will ease preparation. The list of forms required for competing applications will therefore be as follows:

  • Budget if NIH is the sponsor, each sub institution must provide an electronic R&R Budget Form for each year of the project, as downloaded from the relevant Funding Opportunity Announcement. See  SF424 Application Guide (e-Submissions) for further instructions.  If NIH is not the sponsor, the sub institution can use the NIH budget pages or some other budget form.
  • A budget justification of all items
  • Biosketches for all key personnel and other significant contributors on the collaborator’s subproject (See SF424 Application Guide)
  • A description of the research resources available to the collaborator at her/his home institution.

Additional materials to be submitted to RU PI, if necessary

  • A letter of collaboration from the subrecipient investigator.
  • Latest compliance information for human and animal subjects and/or lab safety as needed.
  • Vertebrate Animal Section and/or Human Subjects narrative
  • Authentication of Key Biological and/or Chemical Resources
