Make sure your submissions to Grants.gov, Research.gov and the sponsoring agency are received successfully on the first attempt. Cayuse 424 features an Advanced Validation Engine that ensures a 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 and Research.gov validations, and other business rules. Error warnings include hyperlinks to help you quickly resolve issues and submit error-free proposals every time.
Eliminate as much data entry as possible and improve accuracy with Cayuse 424 Auto-Fill capabilities. Cayuse 424 stores institutional and personnel data, so when a proposal is created, information is conveniently pre-populated within the proposal or auto-filled from drop-down menus. Auto-Fill data includes biographical information, department and institutional information (such as DUNS # and addresses), plus rate and salary information for simplifying budget creation.
Subaward Automation Improves Accuracy
Eliminate the error-prone challenge of manually folding subaward proposals and budgets into prime proposals. The Import Subaward feature ensures any changes made to a Subaward automatically get carried forward to the prime proposal. Automation offers greater assurance of data accuracy when developing complex proposals that include one or more subawards.
Connect Critical Data in Real Time to External Systems
Improve research efficiency, data accuracy, and compliance throughout the entire research project life cycle. Cayuse 424 APIs simplify post-award management, creating a bi-directional data exchange of proposal information with existing eRA systems. Cayuse Connect modules maintain a single, accurate version of your most important data by integrating Cayuse 424 with institutional business applications.
API Connect provide easy integration into post-award systems, preserving the value of your investment and reducing administrative tasks. With bi-directional data exchange of proposal information with existing eRA systems, you can maintain capital expenses and expedite S2S submissions to federal funding agencies.
Cayuse Connect modules – HR Connect, Data Connect and SSO Connect – provide integration with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Data Warehouse and Authentication systems, improving efficiency, data accuracy, and compliance throughout the entire project life cycle.
