Division for Research Development
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​A subcontract is used when a research or research-related contract is already in place and another external party needs to be subcontracted to assist with the project or deliver a specific portion of the deliverables. The University can also be subcontracted by another institution to perform specific tasks or services. When drafting a subcontract, the​ terms and conditions of the principal agreement between the client and the University should be transferred to the subcontract to ensure the University meets its obligation towards the client. A back-to-back agreement is therefore recommended.
