Existing Third-Party Agreements
I have an existing agreement executed with my third-party provider but it does not comply with the required provisions, what do I do?

It is not uncommon for grant recipients to utilize providers they have existing relationships with to complete activities under a federal award. However, you should be cautious to ensure there is no duplication of effort, no supplanting, and the provider complies with all required terms and conditions of your award.

One area that can be cumbersome for recipients is when they have an existing agreement with a third-party provider but it DOES NOT comply with the elements outlined in the relevant compliance checklists.

From a federal grant perspective, as a recipient of federal funds, you are responsible for ensuring your third-party agreements comply with all required and relevant provisions. OCJG recommends discussing your options with your contract team and/or legal counsel to determine if a new agreement needs to be executed or an amendment to the existing agreement is acceptable.
