Research Proposals

Cayuse SP

All new research proposals must be submitted using CAYUSE SP.

The SVM rolled out Cayuse SP for processing new proposal development and submission beginning January 1, 2018. 

In order to comply with reporting requirements, all proposals with a PI, Co-I or Co-PI from the SVM will require the completion of the SVM Supplemental Questions form. This form must be completed and uploaded with the rest of the attachments in your proposal document.

Cayuse SP is designed to manage research operations and provide a framework to track and report on sponsored program activities. It manages the life cycle of sponsored projects with Cayuse SP, a flexible, user-friendly Web application designed to reduce complexity, improve collaboration, and provide visibility from pre-award through post-award.

Cayuse 424 continues to be available for all submissions.

Please view the training page for guides and the training session schedule. Recorded trainings from the UC Davis Office of Research are available as well.

Proposals will no longer be initiated in EGReT. Any information previously entered into EGReT will remain available for reporting and inquiries.

Subscribers can access EGReT for historical research project information by clicking here.

EGReT (Electronic Grant and REsearch Tracking) system was created to simplify the submission, management, and tracking of extramural contract and grant proposals submitted by principal investigators in the School of Veterinary Medicine.

With EGReT, faculty and staff were able to complete and upload forms and documents online for review, approval, and submission to Office of Research in a secure, password protected manner.  All data and information entered the first time, including any uploaded documents and forms, is remembered by EGReT for use in subsequent proposals. The EGReT system was designed to be user-friendly and facilitate efficient use of time and effort.  It will no longer be used for proposal submission after 12/31/17.
