UTSA acquires new grant submission system
By Noe Saldana
Director of Sponsored Programs
(July 3, 2008)--As of July 1, all UTSA grant proposals will be developed and electronically submitted through Cayuse424, a new Web-based system purchased by the university. The new system is easier to use than the previous PureEdge or Adobe applications, and it supports the creation, validation and submission of error-free grant applications.

- UTSA alumna Jordan Kaufmann wins $50K for new stent-graft start-up
- UTSA begins new way-finding sign installation this summer at Main Campus
- USA Today: UTSA long jumper Tyler Williamson rescues three-year-old boy
Cayuse424 is a system-to-system (PC or Mac) alternative to the Grants.gov submission procedure used previously at UTSA for federal applications for National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation grants. Applications for these and other federal or non-federal sponsored grants now will be routed through Cayuse424.
Instead of the old method of downloading PureEdge (or Adobe) from Grants.gov, users now will log in to the Cayuse Web site and create their own Grants.gov application by selecting an agency announcement and using the Cayuse interface.
The user-friendly features include:
- Error checking before submission using NIH Commons or other federal agency standards
- Creates a PDF file of the entire application including attachments for review before submission
- Stores primary investigator profiles for automatic loading into the application and subsequent applications
