Kuali Coeus (KC)
Kuali Coeus (KC) is the component of USC TARA that supports pre and post award management of research awards. KC provides a set of tools and modules that make research administration easier and more efficient. KC is an updated version of the MIT developed Coeus software. It is open source software and developed and maintained by a community of universities through the Kuali Foundation. KC consists of the following elements:
- Pre Award: Proposal generation, routing and submission; online approvals
- Post Award Management: Account establishment, award management and close-out; online progress report submissions
- KC interfaces with the Kuali Financial System (KFS),which replaced the university’s legacy accounting systems, such as general ledger, accounts payable, purchasing, capital asset management, cashiering, purchasing and effort certification. KC and KFS are fully integrated to facilitate the exchange of data between the two systems.
- KC post-award was implemented in April, 2013. Kuali Coeus pre-award will be implemented in 2014.
