First-time submission success rate

Make sure your submissions to Grants.gov and the sponsoring agency are received successfully on the first attempt. Cayuse 424 features an Advanced Validation Engine that ensures a 99.99% first-time success rate for all system-to-system submissions. During proposal development, the system performs real-time error checks for agency- and opportunity-specific rules, Grants.gov validations, and other business rules. Users can zoom in on specific warnings to help resolve issues quickly and submit error-free proposals every time.
Eliminate as much data entry as possible and improve accuracy with Cayuse 424 Auto-Fill. The feature stores institutional and personnel data directly in the system, so that when a proposal is created, much of the information is pre-populated within the proposal or auto-filled from drop-down menus. Auto-population data can include biographical information, department and institutional information (such as DUNS # and addresses), plus rate and salary information for ease in budget creation.
Subaward Automation Improves Accuracy
Eliminate the difficulty of manually folding a subaward proposal and budget into a prime proposal. Just use the Import Subaward feature. Any changes made to a Subaward automatically get carried forward to the prime proposal. Automation offers greater assurance of accuracy when developing complex proposals that include one or more subawards.
Resubmit Without Duplicating Entries
Repurpose large amounts of proposal information quickly and easily with the Copy/Transform function. All it takes is a button click to eliminate duplicate data entry and save you time.
Easy Access to Proposal Budgets
Create budgets online for federal and non-federal proposals with Cayuse 424. Your research team has real-time access to budget information in a single system, without the need for additional tools and spreadsheets. With proposal and budgeting information available in a single place, research administrators can keep better track of components for easy reference and improved accuracy.
All proposal-related files can be stored within Cayuse 424. Easily attach documentation for a specific project when submitting required files to Grants.gov. The Cayuse 424 document storage area lets users store all source documents (e.g. the Word version of the PDF) and provides secure access to supporting files so they’re available from any location at any time. Such access allows users to easily create a PDF of a full proposal, or print the complete proposal and accompanying documentation/attachments. In this way, all aspects of a proposal can be viewed or routed.
