Stanford Picks New Grant Proposal Submission Software

Stanford University has selected new software to electronically submit federal grant proposals.

Cayuse 424, from Evisions, is intended to simplify the work of creating and submitting federal grant proposals. An SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) product for cloud-based, automated completion and submission of federal grant proposals, it is delivered over a secure web connection.

Company representatives said it is used to submit more than 15,000 higher education grant proposals each year with an error-free rate of 99 percent for first-time submissions.

The software automatically submits proposals via, a single access point for about 900 grant programs offered by the 26 federal grant-making agencies, allowing organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities.

It is an integrated component of Stanford's eRA (electronic Research Administration) program, the IT infrastructure that allows it to administer all of its government and non-government grants. Evisions can update Cayuse 424 automatically when new functionalities appear on the scene without additional licensee fees, consultants or training required.

"It is our simple desire to remove barriers so that the research community can focus on its mission to advance knowledge and make meaningful contributions to the world," said Evisions President Matt McLellan. "We also recognize that not all institutions require our full product suite. Larger clients are able to leverage our Cayuse 424 module to make proposal development, validation and submissions to easier and improve data integrity using a modern SaaS solution."
