Who is a Subrecipient?

A subrecipient is a non-USC entity that expends awards received from USC to carry out a portion of USC’s programmatic effort under a sponsored project. The subrecipient may be another educational institution, an independent laboratory, a foundation, a for-profit corporation, a non-profit corporation or other organization, and may be a domestic or foreign entity. ¬†Generally, USC does not issue subawards to individuals.¬† A subrecipient can also be referred to as a subcontractor or subawardee.
