Cayuse Proposals

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

Cayuse Proposals provides an industry-leading cloud-based solution for proposal development and submission to Grants.gov 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 Grants.gov funding opportunities are available on Cayuse Proposals. Initially, we expect that faculty and staff will submit most federal Grants.gov submissions through Cayuse Proposals in close collaboration with OSP’s Pre-Award staff. Cayuse Proposals fully integrates with NSF FastLane and we strongly encourage NSF researchers to become familiar with Cayuse Proposals, 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!
