Cayuse424 (Cayuse) is a web-based system with a direct portal to Grants.gov that provides a faster and more reliable grant proposal submission system. Cayuse also assists faculty with preparation of applications by maintaining a database of standard information related to the University, faculty, and staff which auto-fill into application forms. Cayuse also includes an electronic routing system for internal approval of the grant application, thus eliminating the need for hard copy distribution.
A Cayuse account is created by simply logging in with your UTHealth username and password. See further instructions in the Getting Started with Cayuse424 document.
Effective September 2013, Cayuse will be the primary mechanism to route proposals (federal and non-federal) to OSP for review and approval. Detailed instructions are provided in the How to Upload a Non-Federal Application to OSP document.
All federal proposals built in Cayuse will be submitted by the PI or their delegate using the self-submit process. HOOP 64 requires OSP review of the Administrative & Financial (A&F) portion of the application. Once OSP reviews and approves the A&F portion, it will be routed back to the department. After the PI has completed the science, the PI or their delegate will submit the final application. For detailed instructions, click here.
