Part III: Post Award Requirements
Chapter 14: Termination for Convenience

The awarding agency may terminate any project, in whole or in part, when a recipient materially fails to comply with the terms and conditions of an award, which includes the unauthorized use of payment access codes by someone other than the grantee of record, or when the recipient and the awarding agency agree to do so. In the event that a project is terminated, the awarding agency will:

  1. Notify the recipient in writing of its decision;
  2. Specify the reason;
  3. Afford the recipient/subrecipient a reasonable time to terminate project operations; and
  4. Request the recipient seek support from other sources.

A project which is prematurely terminated will be subject to the same requirements regarding audit, recordkeeping, and submission of reports as a project which runs for the duration of the project period. Refer to 28 CFR Part 18 for appeal rights in event of termination.
