This system will be used by Sponsored Programs, the Controller’s Office, the Office of Research Integrity and Engagement and researchers, in creating a holistic record which we expect will decrease administrative burden and increase efficiency and necessary compliance associated with research administration. 

Cayuse Sponsored Projects (SP) will be used to prepare and submit external funding requests for internal approvals and manage funded awards.
