Cayuse 424

In collaboration with OneMontclair and Evisions, Inc., the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is excited to announce the availability of Cayuse 424!

Cayuse 424 provides an industry-leading cloud-based solution for proposal development and submission to as well as automated electronic proposal routing. It is touted nationwide by researchers and administrative staff for its ease of use and “user-friendly” interface.

Over 98% of funding opportunities are available on Cayuse 424. Initially, we expect that faculty and staff will submit most federal submissions through Cayuse 424 in close collaboration with ORSP's Pre-Award staff. Cayuse 424 fully integrates with NSF FastLane and we strongly encourage NSF researchers to become familiar with Cayuse 424, as it provides similar ease of use and some automated features (e.g., budget building) that FastLane does not provide. NSF researchers who prefer to use FastLane directly may continue to do so.

We encourage you to log into the new system, take a look around, and see all that it has to offer!
