Cayuse “Sponsored Projects,” or “Cayuse SP” bridges the gap between outdated manual processes and current state of the art system for proposal routing and approval; non-financial award management and reporting. The OSP manual routing and approval process is now replaced by a “data gathering” electronic “Internal Processing Form” with autofill functionality. (Yes, the legacy MSU routing form is now obsolete!).
The Office of Sponsored Programs will be able to track and report on many aspects of a specific Principal Investigator, Department, and/or College’s proposals and awards—e.g., key personnel, student involvement, scientific discipline, IT needs, and compliance considerations to name just a few!
Cayuse SP is a complementary system to Cayuse Proposals (formerly Cayuse 424). As in the past, you will still use Cayuse Proposals to develop and submit proposals to Grants.gov. However, proposals sent via Grants.gov through Cayuse Proposals are electronically linked with Cayuse SP. This allows the system to autofill important budget information on your routing form, yet the routing and approval process will now lie in SP exclusively. NSF applicants will continue to use FastLane or Research.gov but the approval process will take place in Cayuse SP.
And, over time, PI’s, Chairs, Deans, etc., will have instant and full real-time visibility into their respective individual and unit proposal and award activity! OSP’s reporting to the MSU leadership and community will be significantly enhanced with Cayuse SP, with greater depth and efficiency.
We hope you enjoy using Cayuse SP. If you have any questions, please contact OSP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
