Risk Rating

Subrecipient risk ratings are now available using the Subrecipient Dashboard.

The Subrecipient Dashboard provides risk ratings for all JHU subrecipients receiving funding from the last four fiscal years to the present. It also allows users to filter by risk rating, country, sponsor type, division, department and subrecipient. Users may export information from the Dashboard to Microsoft Excel or PDF.
