Outgoing third party agreements include subawards, multiple-campus awards (MCAs), subcontracts, vendor contracts, professional services, personal services, and consultant agreements. The determination of a third party entity's classification on a project as a subrecipient, subcontractor, vendor contractor, etc. is a requirement under Federal Uniform Guidance. The UCLA Principal Investigator determines whether a third party is a subrecipient based on a number of factors including the nature of the work being performed, the type of third party involved, and the prime sponsor agreement.

The information below and Subrecipient vs. Contractor Determination tool should be used as a guide for determining the agreement type. 

OCGA reviews the third party involvement in the project to ensure the agreement (subaward or vendor agreement) determinations made by the UCLA Principal Investigator comply with University and sponsor requirements.
