• Getting Started

    Cayuse is an internal grant and contract system that facilitates communication and tracking across the PI, OSRAA, and department/college approvers. All grants and contract proposals must be submitted through Cayuse. Cayuse reviewers will check your proposal documents against solicitation guidelines and can help catch errors before submission. Input into Cayuse also ensures that your money will be tracked appropriately when received and credit for your efforts given to the correct College. When you start a proposal, you will be assigned a number. Your information can be saved as you go and you can continue to edit as you have the information prior to submission. Consider starting this process early. There are many screens that can be filled in prior to finalizing your grant, making the final submission less stressful.

    Items to have before starting your proposal in Cayuse:

    • URL for request for proposals or download a copy of the request for proposals
    • Ensure that the entire team completed and submitted their annual conflict of interest form
    • Title and Abstract of project
