4 C424 Features/Benefits  Downloads funding opportunities directly from  Provides autofill and data reuse capability  Automatically tracks errors and warnings  Electronic routing  Easy navigation between forms  Stores proposal documents and attachments  Tracks proposal submission status 4

5 C424 Compatibility  If you are using a Mac, the standard Safari browser is incompatible  Please download and install Firefox  5

6 Logging into Cayuse424  To log-in to Cayuse424: 1.Type in https://lehman- 2.Click Login 3.User your Lehman College user id and password 6

7 Logging into Cayuse424  Trouble logging in to Cayuse424: 1.You should not get this screen 2.Contact me at 7

8 The Opportunity  An opportunity is a grant application package that is downloaded, completed and routed for review prior to submitting to  New proposals can be built once the Opportunity (i.e. FOA) has been downloaded into Cayuse424  Before you start to build your proposal you need to determine if the opportunity you are applying for has already been downloaded  You do this by reviewing the Opportunity List 8

9 Reviewing the Opportunity List  Click the Opportunities Tab 9  Cayuse424 displays a list of opportunities already downloaded

10 The Opportunity List  Filter the list using the Keyword Filter  Sort the list by clicking any of the column headings  Click the Info Button for Opportunity Details 10

11 Managing Opportunities  If you locate the opportunity you are applying for in Cayuse424, you do not need to download that opportunity again  If your opportunity has not been previously downloaded, if must be before you can proceed 11

12 Finding Opportunities  To retrieve an opportunity from you must know the Opportunity Number or CFDA#  You can obtain the Funding Opportunity number by going to and using the Find Grant Opportunities 12

13 How to Download an Opportunity 1. Click the Opportunities tab 2. Click the Retrieve Opportunities button 3. Enter the Opportunity Number or CFDA # into the respective fields 4. Click Retrieve Opportunities 13

14 Using Opportunities  Simply select the opportunity using the green plus symbol.  We will detail proposal creation in the Introduction to Federal Application Forms (SF424) workshop 14

15 Creating a New Proposal 15 1.Login to Cayuse424 2.Click the Opportunities tab 3.Click the opportunities corresponding Creation button

16 Creating New Proposal 16 4.Type internal Proposal Name 5.Select Principal Investigator using the drop-down menu 6.Choose # of Budget Periods 7.Choose Validation Type  This setting determines which agency validations will be used on the form set 8.Click Create Proposal  Cayuse424 creates the SF424 form set required by the opportunity  See next slide for screen shot

20 Please Note: 20  The signed disclosure statement form and released time request form must be included in all proposals  If you do not have a scanner, you can bring or send via interoffice mail – at least 5 days prior to the deadline - the signed copy of the disclosure form to ORSP and the staff will upload it to your  Both forms can be downloaded from our website:

21 Please Note: 21 All PSC-CUNY proposals will have to be routed through Cayuse

22 Navigating the Proposal  All forms are listed in the navigation bar on the left of the screen  The checkboxes control which forms are submitted electronically to the agency  Mandatory forms are automatically checked and cannot be unchecked  Optional forms can be checked to include in the proposal submission (e.g. Detailed vs. modular budget pages)  The page numbers are links to form pages 22

23 Navigating the Proposal  Use the left panel to navigate the form set:  Click page numbers to display the page.  Or click the minus sign to close the left navigation bar, then,  Use the drop down menu to navigate form set. 23

24 Internal Proposal Title 24  Give some thought to how you name your proposal. Consider appropriate conventions that will make your proposal easy to locate once your inventory of proposals grows  Your Contracts and Grants Office may suggest a naming convention  Once you name your proposal, you can easily rename it by clicking on the name field and typing in a new title

25 Validation and Error Tracking 25  Cayuse424 keeps a running total of all errors and warnings  As you correct errors and warnings, the running total decreases  Errors are fatal. Any proposal that is submitted with errors will be rejected by or the granting agency  Warnings are not fatal; but be sure if you are submitting a proposal with warnings that you have determined the warning will not cause the proposal to be rejected or delayed by the granting agency  Any items labeled “Info” are just special pieces of information and advice that we believe might be useful to the application submission process.

26 Displaying Errors, Warnings and Info 26 1.Click the Errors/Warnings/Info button at the bottom of the proposal page to display details 2.Click the hyperlink. Cayuse424 will display the page on which the Error/Warning occurs and highlight the field that contains the Error/Warning

27 Basic Concepts 27  After the proposal is created, the routing process can begin  The proposal should be routed to institutional officials when it is ready to be submitted to the funding agency

28 Proposal Lock Feature 28  When you are working in a proposal, all other users who have permission to that proposal will see the lock icon [ ] adjacent to that proposal when they log-on to Cayuse424  The icon signifies that the proposal is locked  Only persons who you have been granted permission to “break-lock” can break your lock  Persons without the break-lock authority can still open up the proposal in read-only format; but they will not be able to enter data or add attachments

29 Basic Concepts 29  Routing is designed to be incremental and assumes that:  Participants know where a proposal should go next  For Lehman College, a proposal requires the approval of your Chair, Dean, and ORSP prior to submission  Leave ample time before the deadline so the routing process can complete before submission

30 Basic Concepts 30  The actual route taken is likely to vary by proposal and therefore the PI must specify the correct Chair and Dean for each proposal  Stephanie Endy should be selected for all proposals

31 Routing Configuration: Delegates 31  Cayuse provides proposal reviewers the option of delegating authority  This will be used by Lehman administrators in case s/he is not available to review the proposal  The PI should always select the Chair, Dean and Stephanie Endy as a reviewer even if it is common knowledge that the authority is delegated

32 Routing Configuration: Delegates 32  If a reviewer has named delegate(s) in the Routing Profile of their Professional Profiles, the following rules apply:  Delegates receive the same notifications as the Primary  Delegates can perform the same actions as the Primary  Multiple delegates are allowed  Delegates have to establish their own pecking order  Delegates must have Professional Profiles that can be viewed by the proposal initiator

33 Routing Configuration: Delegates 33  In other words: The Delegate has the same authority to approve a proposal as the actual administrator (Chair, Dean, etc.)

34 Creating the Routing Chain 34  Whoever creates the proposal (PI, Postdoc, PI Assistant, etc.) can specify the review and approval route by setting up a Routing Chain in the proposal  If you do have an assistant working on the proposal, it is important to inform that person who should be included on the routing chain

35 Creating the Routing Chain 35 Open the prime proposal and click  The PI of the proposal automatically appears first in the Routing Chain to ensure that the PI sees the proposal even if s/he is not the creator

36 Creating a Routing Chain 36 1.Add reviewers by clicking 2.Insert a person into the chain by clicking. Click on the appropriate icon to add above or below members of the existing chain 3. Choose the name of the required reviewer and click Close Edit Chain Window  All reviewers must have an established Professional Profile, otherwise they will not be on the list  You can only select reviewers if you have permission to view their Professional Profile; the ORSP will make sure that you have been granted permission to see their profile  See next slide for screen shot

37 Creating a Routing Chain 37

38 Creating a Routing Chain 38  Andrew Hoff (the Chair in this case) has been added to the Routing Chain  Repeat steps to add your Dean and Stephanie Endy

39 Editing the Routing Chain  You can insert or remove persons from the routing chain once it’s defined by clicking on the appropriate icon and following the system prompts 39

40 Editing the Routing Chain  When the routing chain is completed properly, the PI should be listed first, followed by the Chair, Dean and Stephanie  The order can be changed by clicking the on the appropriate line 40

41 Initiating a Routing Chain 41 1.Once you have completed the routing chain, the PI or their delegate can initiate the chain by clicking the box adjacent to their name  Whenever a proposal is initiated or approved by someone on the routing chain Cayuse424 will prompt you to approve the action 2.Click Approve  See next slide for screen shot

42 Initiating a Routing Chain 42

43 Initiating a Routing Chain 43  Once the Routing Chain is initiated three things happen: 1. An is sent to the next reviewer on the list notifying them of their turn to review the proposal 2. “Write” permissions are taken away from all those who have permissions to the proposal 3. The proposal is added to the Routing List of all the reviewers on the chain (the Routing List is found on the Routing tab)

44 Routing: Warm/Hot List 44  Each user has their own Routing List that is accessed from the Routing tab  All proposals this reviewer is requested to review are listed  Each proposal shows how long it’s been in a review process  Click on the link to be given access to the proposal for review purposes only

45 Routing: Rules 45  Proposal approval must follow the routing chain. Reviewers can look at a proposal once it hits their Routing List, but they cannot approve it until the previous reviewers on the routing chain have signified their approval  Once a proposal is routed, Cayuse424 grants temporary permission to reviewers to access the proposal  In case of an emergency a reviewer may be deleted from the chain (skipped)  From the routing chain “initiator” perspective, the proposal becomes “read only” once routing is initiated

46 Approving the Proposal  Reviewers indicate their approval by checking the box adjacent to their name  Once approved, the next reviewer on the routing chain is notified via  As soon as the AOR (or Delegate) checks their box an is sent to everyone on the routing chain and electronic submission to can proceed 46

47 Retracting Approval  Once approval is given it can be retracted by un-checking the box next to the reviewers name. This will cause the proposal to be sent back for re-review and/or corrections  Once a routing chain is started, the initiator can Recall (cancel) the whole process by un-checking their box 47

48 Routing: History 48  All routing actions are logged in the proposal’s Routing History
