Electronic Proposal Submission
OSU is now using Cayuse for proposal submission. Cayuse’s production system 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 notify OSP that a proposal is in progress so that review and approval can be completed in time to meet sponsor deadlines. As with all proposals, OSP approval of a paper copy is required prior to being submitted to the sponsor.
Cayuse can be used instead of Grants.gov. With the exception of collaborative proposals, Cayuse 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 a paper copy is completed, 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 a paper copy of the 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.
