December 15 Kuali Coeus Upgrade - Summary of Changes

The Kuali Coeus system will be undergoing an upgrade this weekend beginning Friday evening, 12/15/17, at 10pm. This upgrade includes multiple S2S forms supporting sponsor requirements, including NIH/PHS “Forms-E” for submissions due on or after January 25, 2018. We expect the system will be back online early Saturday morning, 12/16/17, at 2am.

This release includes two noticeable changes:

  1. NIH “Forms-E” - NIH is revising several forms to remove reference to human subjects, and all human subjects information is being consolidated into a new NIH multi-page form. This change is being made by NIH to implement their new definitions of clinical trials. More guidance on the topic of clinical trials, and about using the new NIH “Forms-E” will be coming soon.
  2. Proposal Approvers - for proposal approvers, you may notice a new button to “add attachments” upon approving a proposal. At this time, internal business process is being discussed in OSP for this new feature, and we ask proposal approvers to refrain from using this new feature until further notice.
