How do I print out a full version of a System to System (S2S) proposal?
You can print the forms from the Grants.gov window.
Some federal agencies allow you to download/print exactly what the sponsor sees once the application is submitted via Grants.gov and retrieved by the agency. For instance, for NIH your PI will be able to log in to the NIH Commons and view the grant image exactly as the reviewers will see it. As sponsor systems may each reassemble the grants.gov application elements in a different order to meet their internal standards, we cannot match all the sponsors' specific application ordering.
If I upload both a word doc and a pdf doc to a narrative module, for a Grants.gov submission, are both files types for the module transmitted?
Please read the solicitation for instructions on what to include in your application. Many require use of PDF files when uploading attachments. However, Kuali Coeus is able to transmit other types of files (e.g. Word, PPT). If you have any questions please contact email@example.com
How do I use Kuali Coeus to submit proposals to non-government sponsors?
Many of the narrative types available for selection are based on the grants.gov forms application. However, there is a set of Narrative Types that are available for all proposals, including non-government, and non-grants.gov linked submissions.
Please see the Proposal section of Quick Reference Cards, specifically the Routing Requirements document.
Why can’t I view all In-Progress proposals?
You may not have access to view all the proposals created by other users in your department unless they give you a role that allows you to view it. Alternatively, there is a role in Kuali Coeus that allows a user to see all proposals in progress in your unit. This role may be requested by the Primary Financial Authorizer in your unit.
How do I request a new sponsor be added to Kuali Coeus?
Should we put our Project Summary into the Proposal Abstracts section of Kuali Coeus?
Project summary should not be in proposal abstracts. It should be a narrative type of 'project summary'.
If I need to route a proposal through another unit, how do I check to see if they have routing map before I submit for approval?
Navigate to the Summary/Submit page, and click the View Route Log link to see the approval routing after you have submitted the proposal for approval. In the “Future Action Requests” section, click on “show” to see future proposal routing stops for this proposal.
How do I search in Kuali Coeus for a development proposal?
From the home dashboard, click the Search for Proposals link. This will open the search lookup screen. Enter search criteria and click Search.
Do I need to request AOR status from Grants.gov?
AOR status is not necessary in order to download or prepare an Adobe forms application package. MIT is fully registered with grants.gov and the required AOR role is held by the RAS Sponsor Liaisons and or credentialed CAs who submit the proposals to grants.gov. Neither DLC users nor their PI needs to register with grants.gov.
To search for an application package in Grants.gov, go to www.grants.gov and choose “Search Grants”, and then enter the Funding Opportunity # or CFDA Number. Please note, before downloading an application, you should check that you have the correct version of Adobe by following the instructions under the "Verifying Adobe Reader" section under the Support tab.
Please note: Most federal proposals are candidates for a System to System (S2S) submission from Kuali Coeus. Kuali Coeus will link to Grants.gov and populate forms with information and files entered into a Kuali Coeus proposal. For more information and further instructions see Hands On Training (select “S2S Proposal Development Training Manual”)
How can I see if an Institute Proposal is linked to a Proposal Development proposal?
This information can be accessed through Medusa.
If you are in an Institutional Proposal record, you can click on the Medusa tab on the document. The Medusa link will also appear on in your search results screen. You can click on the Proposal Development line to open the Proposal Development details. To view the entire document, click the open link.
You can also see if it is linked to any other documents and/or Awards from the Medusa tab.

Will Kuali Coeus replace NSPIRES for submission of NASA grant proposals?
NASA is still transitioning, but more opportunities are being posted on Grants.gov, which means it could be an opportunity to use Kuali Coeus for s2s submission. The Kuali Coeus team has put several NASA-specific forms into the MIT Production environment, and we have successfully submitted to NASA via Kuali Coeus s2s.
How can I insert a symbol in my proposal title?
At this time, it is not possible to insert a symbol into a proposal title. The problem is twofold – first, different Java versions translate symbols differently and second, the system cannot accommodate symbols in the proposal title.
