Cayuse SP FAQs
What is Cayuse SP?
Cayuse SP is a software tool which replaces the old routing sheet system (Proposal Management System). Cayuse SP will now be used to route and approve proposals, contracts, and other types of agreements internally.
I Don’t See My Sponsor in the Dropdown List. What Should I Do?
Many sponsors to which we regularly submit proposals have been pre-populated in Cayuse SP. If you are submitting to a sponsor that was not pre-populated, select “New Sponsor” and contact email@example.com.
Who is the Primary Administrative Contact in My Department?
There is no primary administrative contact. Anyone in OSRP may help you.
On the Budget Tab, Should I Provide a Summary or Detailed Budget?
OSRP requests that you provide a detailed budget, regardless of budget type you submit to the sponsor. You can find a list of budget templates here.
What if I Have Additional Information That I Want to Share With Osrp or My Department Chair and Dean?
Use the “Submission Notes” tab in order to provide additional information regarding your proposal, contract, or agreement.
I Have Completed the Cayuse Sp Record (Routing Sheet). What Do I Do Next?
This is now a two-step process. The Lead PI, PIs (Co-PIs) will need to certify and route the Cayuse SP record. Please see Cayuse SP - PI Certification steps and Cayuse SP - Department Chair and/or Dean Approval Steps in the Cayuse SP Resources section above.
