Overview: Over several years USAID has awarded a greater number of contracts and grants to include a sub-grant component. While a sub-grant component increases flexibility in making awards and the type of awardees, a lack of skills and experience by the prime and sub-grantee can substantially increase risk to implementation and overall compliance. The prime needs to have in-place sub-grant systems, while the sub-grantee is accountable to the same requirements as the prime. With the increased number of sub-grants, systems and accountability become even more critical.
