Electronic Research Administration

  • Negotiations Module for tracking activities related to set-up of awards, subawards, and related agreements.
  • Cayuse 424 for system-to-system submission of proposals to federal government sponsors, using
  • Kuali Coeus Conflict of Interest (KC COI) is the new electronic system that UCI Public Health Service and National Science Foundation Investigators will use to complete their financial disclosures, replacing the paper forms 800 and 900.
  • Research Management System (RMS) is the new electronic system for UCI’s Animal Care and Use Program, which provides 24/7 secure access to approved protocols.

Coming Soon:

  • Cayuse 424 Phase II will add data synchronization between KC and Cayuse 424, reducing double data entry.
