Kuali Research - electronic grants management

Effective February 1, 2018, SPAR has implemented a web-based software called Kuali Research to support proposal development and approvals, post-award grant management processes, and compliance committees (IRB and IACUC). 

Kuali Research eliminates existing paper-based processes and multiple independent shadow systems into a state-of-the-art electronic, integrated, single sign-on portal to manage the SCSU Sponsored Programs enterprise from idea to archive.
