OSU is now using the Cayuse electronic management system for proposal submission. Cayuse access is found at http://oregonstate.cayuse424.com . The system is under Single Sign-on, and you will use your ONID username (all lower case) and your ONID password to access the website.
It is important to submit your proposal with sufficient time to obtain Department and College Administrator approval and allow 3 business days for Sponsored Program review and authorization. As with all research projects, OSP approval is required prior to proposal submission to the sponsor.
Cayuse 424 can be used instead of Grants.gov (link 424 proposal to Cayuse SP proposal.) With the exception of collaborative proposals, Cayuse 424 can also be used to submit NSF proposals.
Listed below are currently available electronic proposal submission systems at various agencies.
NSF required electronic submission for all proposals, including revisions and supplements, using the FastLane system. In order to register for a FastLane user account, the PI should supply OSP with the information requested on the NSF FastLane System Registration Form. The PI should use the “Allow SRO Access” utility in FastLane to enable OSP to view the proposal online. Once administrative approval of the Cayuse proposal has been obtained, the PI must notify OSP when the proposal is ready for submission. OSP then electronically signs and submits the proposal to NSF. The Project Reports System allows the PI to submit annual and final reports as well as post award updates to NSF.
The e-receipt system allows for online proposal submission, separate actions must be taken by the application and the contract representative to complete the submission process. After review of the Cayuse proposal, the final submission is made by OSP. The information referenced above should be entered for the AOR to ensure OSP the necessary access to approve the proposal. Cayuse can accommodate these proposals as well.
NSPIRES is the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System. This web-based system supports then entire lifecycle of NASA research solicitation and awards, from the release of solicitation announcements through the peer review and selection process, to awards management and publication of research results. Cayuse can also be used for NASA proposals, but check the announcement to see if NSPIRES is required.
