Cayuse Sponsored Projects for Internal Approvals

Cayuse Sponsored Projects is the internal routing mechanism for proposal submission approvals. Cayuse Sponsored Projects is your Sponsored Project Life Cycle Management system in a flexible, user-friendly Web application designed to reduce complexity, improve collaboration and provide transparency from proposal creation to award close-out. At its core, Cayuse Sponsored Projects is the central repository that allows management and visibility in each phase of the life cycle. 

Cayuse Proposals for submission of federal applications

Cayuse Proposals is an easy-to-use web application created specifically to simplify the creation, review, approval, and electronic submission of federal grant proposals. Cayuse Proposals helps organizations of all sizes accelerate proposal development, reduce pre-award overhead and improve the quality and accuracy of sponsored funding proposals. With Cayuse Proposals, proposal development becomes substantially easier than with any other commercial or free technology. It was designed with the belief that there should be as few barriers as possible between scientific research and its federal funding sources.
