  1. Is there any change to Proposal Deadlines when using Cayuse 424?

Proposal still need to be submitted to OSP 5 business days prior to the sponsor deadline. This means that all reviews and approvals prior to OSP should occur before this time.

  1. Once I approve my proposal, will I still be able to make changes to it?

Once a PI approves their proposal, the Proposal Summary information is no longer editable. You are, however, able to upload an updated technical narrative up to 2 days prior to the submission deadline (per OVPR’s 5-day submission deadline)

  1. How does electronic routing work for submitting proposals through alternate means rather than Cayuse 424 (i.e., FastLane, e-mail, etc.)?

When submitting proposals through means other than Cayuse 424, you will complete the submission process for the respective sponsor independent of the routing that occurs in Cayuse. The same information that will be submitted to the sponsor should be uploaded into Cayuse 424.  These will be routed through Cayuse starting with the PI and moving electronically until OSP receives it. OSP will notify you once the proposal is ready for submission.

  1. What documents are required for me to upload?

For all proposals:

If applicable:

  1. Do I need to add a profile in Cayuse 424?

Please search for your name and update your existing profile rather than creating a new profile.

  1. How do I see my PI’s proposal?

In order to view and/or edit your PI’s proposal, you must be granted express permissions to the proposal. Any individuals in the routing queue automatically have access to the proposals.

  1. Where do I enter COI/FCOI information for my proposal?

There is an updated COI and Financial Disclosures form (PDF) that will need to be completed and uploaded in the Documents section of Cayuse 424.

  1. What do I do when I have multiple schools involved?

When multiple schools are involved, you are able to edit the routing chain to add in the additional required approvals.  However, because the routing process is linear and cannot occur simultaneous, we recommend having the proposal electronically route through the PI’s primary school and using the multi-school routing form (PDF) for the other school. Once this routing is complete, this signed form should be uploaded in the documents section of Cayuse 424.

  1. Do I need to do anything different if I have subawardees?

All required subaward documentation should be uploaded in the Documents section of Cayuse 424.

  1. How do I pdf/print my proposal?

You can generate a pdf of your proposal, with or without the attachments, by clicking on the printer icon in the upper right corner of the proposal screen.
