Cayuse SP Post-Award Guidance

The Department of Contracts and Grants is responsible for establishing awards in the University’s Cayuse SP system. To ensure proper post-award administration, DCG will be developing guidance for requesting changes to units and post-award administrators.  As we develop further materials, we will be distributing them via DCG NewsFlashes and posting to the DCG website for future reference.
