  • Differences among the various types of subs;
  • How to distinguish between subawards, hybrid POs, and POs;
  • The roles and responsibilities of RAs and central offices related to subs in the pre- and post-award phases of the project lifecycle;
  • Key requirements for establishing foreign subawards;
  • Steps involved in setting up, monitoring, and closing out subawards;
  • Requirements and processes related to setting up, monitoring, and closing out subprojects.
