We had a question come in that we thought would be best posed to the community. What do you think, would you use the subaward institution's FWA or the prime institution's?In the following scenario, which institution's FWA number would you include on your Proposals (S2S) proposal? Animal or Human subjects work is being proposed at a potential subaward institution, but not at the prime institution.
This is a very interesting question. At my institution, we handle a lot of subawards that deal with Human Subjects - I believe the prime institution utilizes their FWA for the submission, though.It brings to light another question, though. We have a couple of projects where we use animal specimens. We do not have animal facilities, nor any IACUC, but instead, our researchers utilize facilities at a nearby college that has all the required facilities and associated certifications. We have submitted an R21 grant involving animals and I had to use the college's Animal number since we don't have one. The application did get a warning (not error) that the number entered did not match the prime institution's information, but I believe the "why" was adequately explained in the application. Any thoughts on this?? When the Prime site doesn't have the facilities or appropriate certifications but will be using those of another institution that does? Whose number is used then?
