Cayuse is a web-based system for submission of applications via grants.gov. The system is easy to use, provides significant auto-filling of forms, extensive error checking and the ability to see the entire proposal before submission.
Cayuse should be used for electronic grants.gov submissions to federal agencies.
If the funding opportunity is not already retrieved it's easy to load an opportunity by searching for your opportunity number in the “Download Opportunities” button on the Opportunity tab.
If you do not have it on your Funding Opportunity Announcement, look it up by going to https://www.grants.gov and follow the link that says "Find Grant Opportunities."
Important Dates: RSP recommends that you submit your application to your Dean's Office five business days in advance of the deadline. This allows enough time for review, error correction and resubmission before the deadline. It is certain that Grants.gov will slow down in the days and hours prior to a deadline because of limited bandwidth.
Please review these Cayuse Submission Reminders.
If the individual is at UW-Madison, RSP needs to create the profile. We will need to link their NetID to their profile so they will be able to log in. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with their full name, NetID and contact email address and we will create the profile for you. If the individual does not have automatic PI status at the University, please indicate if PI status will be needed for an application (example: F30, F31, F32 applications).
If the individual is not part of UW-Madison, you are welcome to create their profile by following the steps below.
Once the Professional Profile is created it must be affiliated with an institution. This is achieved by linking the Professional Profile to an Institutional Profile.
*If you cannot find the institution you are working with, please email email@example.com with the name, address, DUNS and indirect rate and indirect rate type and the proposal team will add it for you.
