The “Routing and Approvals” feature in Cayuse 424 is designed to obtain sequential departmental and institutional approvals of grant application submissions. This system will be used for internal sign-offs on all applications regardless of whether the actual submission will be made electronically to a federal agency.
All proposals created in Cayuse will automatically generate a Proposal Summary (containing most of the information necessary for pre-submission review) and a Routing Chain (the electronic pathway for obtaining pre-submission institutional approvals).
Each application must have a minimum of three additional documents attached to the Cayuse application file under Proposal Summary, Documents:
1) PI/PD Certification, 2) Proposal Summary Part Two, 3) EH&S Short Form
Default routing chains begin with the PI. The profile of each PI should designate his/her department chair as the "Next Reviewer." Similarly, the profile of each department chair should designate the Office of Grant Support as the Next Reviewer. If this is done, every application created for a PI will have the following chain generated automatically:
PI→Chair→OGS→Dean's Office→FCOI→Grant Accounting→Finance→FCOI(2)
Routing chains can be rebuilt to suit the needs of each proposal.
After routing is completed (i.e. Finance-AOR has approved), the application is authorized for submission to the funding agency. At this stage in the process, ANYONE with “Write” permissions to a proposal may perform the actual application submission to the agency.
