Cayuse424 is the new web-based front end for submission of proposals to Grants.gov and also allows submission to NSF through Research.gov as an alternative to Fastlane. It makes it easier for researchers to search for funding opportunities and provides auto-filling of faculty profiles and interactive error-checking in a streamlined interface to Grants.gov and Research.gov.
Classroom training sessions for faculty and staff are available. Registration for training is required through the FDI website at https://app.fdi.vt.edu/public/?term_pk1=15444. Look for sessions titled "Grants.gov S2S Submission: cayuse Training" under the heading 'Research Administration'.
All Grants.gov submissions are required to be entered through cayuse 424 after March 12, 2012. Faculty who plan to respond to Grants.gov solicitations should attend the training if they have not already done so. Please contact your OSP pre-award administrator with questions and for more information.
