Federal Sponsor Proposal Guidance

The following list provides proposal guidance for the federal sponsors that provide the majority of support for federally-funded research at UCSB.

National Science Foundation (NSF)

The NSF uses their Fastlane and Research.gov electronic systems for proposal submission and proposal and award management.

Fastlane now performs specific error and warning checks before a proposal is submitted. Fastlane has publushed a matrix of automated proposal compliance checks performed by the system.

UCSB submits NSF proposals through Fastlane. Proposals should be prepared in accordance with the program guidelines and the NSF Proposal & Award Policies Procedures Guide (PAPPG).

 

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The NIH uses their eRA Commons electronic systems for proposal and award management. Proposal submission for NIH is completed through Grants.gov. As a campus, we utilize Cayuse, an electronic proposal submission module to submit all Grants.gov proposals.

Cayuse performs a series of error and warning checks prior to proposal submission. Once the proposal is submitted in Cayuse, it will be validated in Grants.gov and moved into eRA Commons. Once there, it will be validated once again and checked for warnings and errors.

NIH proposals should be prepared in accordance with the program guidelines and the SF424 Guide.

 

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

NASA uses their NSPIRES electronic systems for most proposal and award management actions. Proposal submission for NASA is completed through NSPIRES.

NSPIRES performs specific error and warning checks before a proposal is submitted.

NASA proposals should be prepared in accordance with the program guidelines and the NASA Guidebook for Proposers.

 

Department of Energy (DOE)

The DOE utilizes Grants.gov for proposal submission. As a campus, we utilize Cayuse, an electronic proposal submission module to submit all Grants.gov proposals.

Cayuse performs a series of error and warning checks prior to proposal submission. Once the proposal is submitted in Cayuse, it will be validated in Grants.gov.

DOE proposals should be prepared in accordance with the program guidelines.

 

Office of Naval Research (ONR)

ONR utilizes Grants.gov for proposal submission. As a campus, we utilize Cayuse, an electronic proposal submission module to submit all Grants.gov proposals.

Cayuse performs a series of error and warning checks prior to proposal submission. Once the proposal is submitted in Cayuse, it will be validated in Grants.gov.

ONR proposals should be prepared in accordance with the program guidelines.

 

Other Agencies:

The remainder of the federal agencies that provide funding, listed below, also utilize Grants.gov for proposal submission. As a campus, we utilize Cayuse to submit these agency proposals through Grants.gov.

Cayuse performs a series of error and warning checks prior to proposal submission. Once the proposal is submitted in Cayuse, it will be validated in Grants.gov.

All proposals for the following agencies should be prepared in accordance with the program guidelines and any agency specific guidance.
