  • Proposal Development


In 2016, the Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) office implemented Evisions' Research Suite of Cayuse products to streamline proposal development and award processes. All proposals for extramural funding begin with a record in Cayuse SP. Faculty and administrators use their CSUN credentials to log in. 


Cayuse SP is the electronic system of record for all sponsored projects proposals. Electronic records are accessible to PIs, Department Chairs, MARs, College Deans, and CSUN research administration staff. 

Cayuse 424 is a system-to-system interface for preparing and submitting most federal grant proposals. Your RSP Grant Coordinator will guide you through budget and proposal development in 424. 

Cayuse IRB allows researchers to submit protocols for the protection of Human Subjects electronically. Read more under Research Compliance
