Contractors, Subrecipients, Delegates, or "Partners:" Choosing the Best Agreement Under Your Head Start Grant
Head Start agencies must enter into various legal relationships to provide required services to the children and families in their communities. The relationship might be labeled a collaboration, partnership or a memorandum of understanding (MOU). Regardless of what you name the relationship, when expending federal grant dollars, Head Start agencies must select between one of two types of relationships:
- a delegate (subrecipient) relationship or
- contractor relationship.
The choice will impact the written agreement between the parties, monitoring responsibilities and other obligations under the grant. Making this determination can be tricky with respect to EHS Child Care Partnerships as well as other common agreements in Head Start.
During this webinar, we'll discuss:
- How to distinguish between a delegate and contractor relationship
- The contrasting monitoring responsibilities associated with each relationship including the new subrecipient monitoring requirements under the Uniform Grants Guidance
- Important terms to include in delegate and contract agreements
The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase one week after the conclusion of the live webinar.
- Head Start Executive Directors
- Leadership Team Staff of both Grantees and Delegates
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Distinguish between a delegate and contractor relationship
- Understand the contrasting monitoring responsibilities associated with each relationship including the new subrecipient monitoring requirements under the Uniform Grants Guidance
- Know important terms to include in delegate and contract agreements
