Cayuse SP for Internal Approvals
Cayuse SP is the internal routing mechanism for proposal submission approvals (formerly the IPAF). Cayuse SP is your Sponsored Project Life Cycle Management system in a flexible, user-friendly Web application designed to reduce complexity, improve collaboration and provide transparency from proposal creation to award close-out. At its core, Cayuse SP is the central repository that allows management and visibility in each phase of the life cycle.

Cayuse 424 for submission of many federal applications
Cayuse 424 is an easy-to-use web application created specifically to simplify the creation, review, approval, and electronic submission of federal grant proposals. Cayuse 424 helps organizations of all sizes accelerate proposal development, reduce pre-award overhead and improve the quality and accuracy of sponsored funding proposals. With Cayuse 424, proposal development becomes substantially easier than with any other commercial or free technology. It was designed with the belief that there should be as few barriers as possible between scientific research and its federal funding sources.
