Successful submission is ultimately the PI's responsibility, but Proposal Support is here to assist you with your proposal preparation.

To maximize a smooth and successful submission, plan to have your proposal budget, justification, abstract and other internal documents into Cayuse SP and routed for signatures at least a week in advance. OSRAA requires 3 days to review proposals and getting authorization can often take a few days, especially with large collaborative proposals. You can still work on the project description while the budget, justification and a draft proposal and abstract are reviewed.

Proposal Support can assist with:
  • Your Cayuse record (data entry, document uploading, review).
    • Add the proposal support staff to your Cayuse Record as Proposal Editor
    • You will be the one to submit Cayuse for routing. Please plan to submit for routing at 5 or more days prior to the deadline.
  • Review RFP for required documents
  • Collecting, formating, or reviewing required documents (e.g. biosketches, collaborations, current and pending for all senior researchers)
  • Reviewing the budget and budget justification
  • Coordinating with potential sub-award collaborators to gather required documents
  • Something else? Inquire, depending on availability

To request assistance, please call 7-7304 or email.
