is it possible for a federal agency with appropriated funds, to create an award. Such as an "in remembrance" award that the public can apply for and receive? This is still in the infancy phase but need to provide advice on if it is possible? Would it follow the rules of a grant? would it be required to be given to a company? any advice?
Hi All, My company submitted a CPFF proposal (~$3.5M) to a major university as a sub. The solicitation was a DOD BAA which provided that contracts, grants, or other instruments may be awarded. We've been informed that the university was selected for award, and that a grant will be used by DOD rather than a contract. The university claims that, because it is a grant, fee is not allowed, but that we can "absorb" the fee amount originally proposed in other areas. I've done a fair amount of reading and cannot find any reference to a prohibition on fee under a grant. However, I've never dealt with grants before, so perhaps I've missed something somewhere. Does anyone have any information or insight regarding prohibiting fee on grants to awardees and sub-awardees?
