Cayuse Routing and Submission System

On January 1, 2015, Miami University began using an electronic sponsored programs administration  system known as Cayuse to help manage research administration and electronic submission of proposals.

Specifically, Miami has implemented two programs within the Cayuse Research Suite: Cayuse 424, which is a Federal proposal development and system-to-system platform, and Cayuse SP, which reduces the need for paperwork and transforms proposal routing into an electronic process.

Moving from a paper-based system to an electronic system of research administration benefits Miami’s researchers and administrators in several ways:

  • The process of obtaining approvals is much more efficient. Not only is the PI be spared from having to walk a paper Proposal Approval Form (PAF) from office to office, but designated approvers are able to sign off on proposals without having to be physically present in the office.
  • The system allows for easy retrieval of frequently used institutional and personal information, reducing data entry and associated errors.
  • Automatic error-checking and validation of Federal proposals virtually eliminates the chance of a proposal submission being rejected and system-to-system submission facilitates more timely confirmation of successful submission.
  • Because it is designed specifically for research administration, Cayuse allows for more robust reporting of proposal activity at the individual, department, and college levels than was allowed by previous systems.
