If you are a subcontractor to a Partners hospital on a sponsored project, please ensure that you provide us with the following information to ensure timely issuance of your subcontract:
Expectations for a Statement of Work
A SOW should clearly outline the procedures and methods to be used by the subcontractor to accomplish the goals of the subcontract. A one- or two-line description is generally not a sufficient SOW. A complete and detailed SOW typically describes the work being provided and includes:
Any work plan
Required deliverables and milestones
Clear expectations, such as subrecipient will assist in preparing a manuscript
Support for the budget (Please Note: The SOW supports the budget, but it is not the same as a budget justification and should not be a line item of expenses.)
Partners requires Principal Investigator (PI) to review and approve subcontracts prior to issuance. The agreement must be signed by an Authorized Official within Partners Research Management. The subcontract will then be sent to an Authorized Official at the collaborating organization for counter-signature.
PIs are not authorized as institutional signing officials.
