Routing of Sponsored Programs Documents at Indiana University
James P. Becker, Executive Director of Grants and Contract Services
It is the policy of Indiana University that all formal proposals and documents related to externally funded sponsored programs be properly routed through the department, school and the appropriate campus office of the Office of Research Administration (ORA) before any commitments are made.
This policy is to provide direction to prevent unauthorized commitments of institutional resources and for the proper routing of documents related to externally funded sponsored programs.
The Kuali Coeus (KC) Proposal Development document is used to obtain this approval. This KC document summarizes significant administrative contents of a sponsored program request, indicates special needs, and assures concurrence by the project director's department, school or unit administration. The KC system can be accessed through OneStart.
