Sec. 215.41 Recipient Responsibilities.

Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Non-Profit Organizations

The Recipient responsibilities section of the regulation clarifies the role and responsibility of the grantee as a result of a contractual agreement. This section will help grantees to better understand their roles and responsibilities regarding procurement. The recipient is the responsible authority to settle and satisfy contractual and administrative issues, including disputes, claims, protests of award, and source evaluation.

The standards contained in this section do not relieve the recipient of the contractual responsibilities arising under its contract(s). The recipient is the responsible authority, without recourse to the Federal awarding agency, regarding the settlement and satisfaction of all contractual and administrative issues arising out of procurements entered into in support of an award or other agreement. This includes disputes, claims, protests of award, source evaluation or other matters of a contractual nature. Matters concerning violation of statute are to be referred to such Federal, State or local authority as may have proper jurisdiction.
