(Recorded Webinar) Subawards vs Contracts - Distinctions and Implications
The subaward versus contract distinction under federal grant management regulations can be complicated, especially in close-call scenarios where the sub-entity is furnishing services or effort that has a direct programmatic purpose. Join FTLF Partner Scott Sheffler for a one-hour webinar discussing the distinctions between the two types of legal instruments, the benefits offered by each, and the compliance regime imposed for each. In this presentation, we work our way through the regulatory definitions of each, including the factors at 2 CFR 200.331, discuss ways in which those factors are sometime inadequate, and offer additional considerations that will generally prove helpful to your analysis. From there, we discuss pros and cons of each type of agreement, and work through close-call scenarios from both the perspective of “what do we think the agreement is” and “what do we want it to be.”

- Develop an ability to effectively evaluate whether a subaward or contract may be a better option when you may have a choice between them
- Understand the basic comparative compliance regime applicable to subawards and to contracts

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course.
Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
