Kuali Coeus Project: Over the next year, UMB will transition from our current Coeus system to the new Kuali Coeus system for our electronic research administration needs. The Kuali Coeus Project website will include project updates and information.
What is Coeus?
Coeus is UM's fully integrated software solution that supports the research community's needs to electronically create and route proposals for sponsored research project awards to external sponsors, and to submit proposals for federal funding to Grants.gov
Coeus is accessible through the myUM portal to faculty and research administrators with internet access and who either have the required Java Run Time application on their computer or sufficient privileges/rights to download and install the correct Java version. Coeus provides the ability for research faculty to work on the science concurrent with an administrator or designee working on other areas, such as the budget. This is a vastly different model than similar software packages that allow only one user to work on a proposal at a given point in time. The electronic version of the completed proposal is subsequently routed using the Coeus approval engine for submission through Coeus to federal sponsors via Grants.gov (the Internet-based clearinghouse used to manage the posting and submission of grant opportunities on behalf of twenty-six federal sponsors), or using mail or a sponsor's electronic submission system.
Coeus is composed of three main modules:
- Proposal Development
- Institute Proposal (Proposal Data Information Storage)
Together these three modules enable a direct link between the proposal and the subsequently funded award. These data are interfaced with eUM Financials and made accessible through a reporting mechanism, RAVEN Coeus, to provide the University community with a clear, concise and timely view of vital pre-award and post-award statistics. In addition a fourth module, Subcontracts, tracks subrecipient agreements issued by UM under sponsored awards.
