The system for submitting funding proposals has been completely transformed. Over the past year, the Research Office has implemented a state-of-the-art electronic proposal system, Cayuse. Cayuse SP replaces the paper Proposal Transmittal Form, and is now used for all proposals.  Cayuse 424 is the Federal form set for both and, and can also be used to prepare proposal budgets for proposals going to non-Federal sponsors.

Faculty should no longer be submitting paper-based proposals or the OSU Proposal Transmittal Form. Multiple training sessions have already been offered on the Cayuse products, and staff from the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) will continue to offer training sessions at least monthly. For information about training, please e-mail

OSP’s web-drop capability for packages is now disabled.  These proposals (with the exception of the submissions for OSU’s Statewide Public Service funds) should be prepared through Cayuse 424 and routed through Cayuse SP.  If you began proposal preparation in Cayuse 424 ,  contact an OSP staff member for assistance with proposal routing.

Sponsored Programs now has distinct teams to serve Oregon State researchers

  • Aedra Reynolds, Dawn Wagner and Vickie Watkins support the College of Agricultural Sciences, the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, the College of Forestry, and the units housed at the Hatfield Marine Science Center.
  • Eric Anundson, Cindy Rasberry and Lin Reilly support all other units.
  • Please join us in welcoming Kim Reese as our  new friendly voice on the phone and smiling face at out front desk in Kerr 308B.

You will soon see a refreshed OSP website that should make our services and resources even more accessible.

Director, Office of Sponsored Programs
