Subaward Activation

After Stanford University accepts an award and establishes a financial account (PTA), the PI or his/her authorized administrator may submit a requisition to issue a Subaward.  Stanford Principal Investigators or designees may not authorize a Subrecipient to begin working until OSR fully executes the Subaward agreement.




  • Submits a request to issue a Subaward by processing a requisition through Oracle iProcurement
  • Attaches required Subaward documents to the requisition including the statement of work, budget, budget justification, and Subrecipient Commitment Form (OSR Form 33)
  • RMG is not involved in this process
  • Receives, reviews, and processes Subaward requisitions from Oracle iProcurement
  • Performs risk analysis review of both the potential Subrecipient and project-specific elements
  • Drafts, negotiates, and executes Subaward agreements on behalf of the University
