MSU's new Research Administration System, Kuali Coeus (KC), will enable researchers to create funding proposals, route proposals for approval, and in some instances, electronically submit proposals to a funding agency. The system captures data in a central repository to facilitate future submissions and reporting. It will also permit researchers to better track proposals, and increase the accuracy of data collection and reporting.
The mission of Michigan State University's Research Administration Project is to improve collaboration and transparency in the research process by implementing an enterprise-level research administrative system. The University research community will benefit from improved information management throughout the complex life-cycle of proposal development and submission, award administration, and compliance.
