The principal investigator (PI) has final responsibility for ensuring the validity and appropriateness of all activities performed in pursuit of a specific award’s goals. Therefore, it is the principal investigator’s responsibility to ensure that any work performed by a subrecipient is appropriate. A PI, or their designee, should review all subrecipient invoices thoroughly to ensure that all work is performed as stated and invoiced.
To pay a subrecipient invoice, the department should follow purchase order request and invoice
payment procedures from the Office of Procurement and Payment Services.
