Sponsored Programs Policies


If interested in a subcontractor for your project, first check with ORSP for allowability if initially not budgeted or requested in the proposal.

Request for Subagreement and a Competitive Bid Disclosure Form needs to be completed for each subcontractor during a project. The agreement should be requested and issued by ORSP prior to your subcontractor beginning work on your project.

Request for Subagreement

  • Answer all questions on form.
  • Attach subcontractor proposal to form.
  • PI and dean/director signatures are required where indicated at the bottom of form.
  • Forward the completed form to the ORSP Project Administrator.
  • Include the Statement of Work, budget, and budget justification with this form.

Subcontract Agreement Process

  • Once the Request for Subagreement is received by the ORSP Project Administrator, the formal subcontract agreement is prepared and forwarded to the subcontractor for signature and notary. A copy is also sent to the PI.
  • Subcontractor returns both copies of signed agreements to ORSP.
  • ORSP obtains authorized signature on behalf of the University of Denver.
  • One fully signed copy is kept for subcontractor file, and the other is sent to the subcontractor to keep for their records.
  • When invoices are submitted, the subcontractor name on the invoice must match the subcontractor name listed on the Request for Subagreement.
