Distinguishing Contractors from Delegates
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.
