Cross MAU Activity

Proposals Involving Multiple MAUs

Some proposed projects involve more than one Major Administrative Unit (MAU).  The University of Alaska has three MAUs:  UAA, UAF and UAS.  An MAU cannot be a subaward in another MAU's proposal. The University of Alaska is considered one organization with a single accounting system and, therefore, does not have an internal subaward mechanism. If one MAU (the prime) writes a proposal which includes activity that will be conducted by one or more of the other UA MAUs, the work completed by UAF, UAA, and UAS IS NOT treated as a subrecipient.

Procedures for proposals with Multiple MAU Involvement:

  • Each MAU enters their portion into Banner FRAPROP.
  • Each MAU should use their F&A rate for their portion of the proposal.
  • The proposal budget should combine all line items for the MAUs involved, with separate MTDC lines for each MAU's F&A recovery, using the multi-unit tab of the budget template.
  • Each MAU must submit a signed routing form from their campus to the lead MAU to ensure proper approvals. Note that this is done on each MAU's respective form.
  • For NSF proposals,  prepare a collaborative proposal in FastLane, unless agency guidelines prohibit it.
