ClickTM Implementation
During the 2017-2018 academic year, Michigan State University is implementing an enterprise-level research compliance system, Click, to manage MSU's Institutional Review Board (IRB), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) compliance activities. The EHS component of Click includes the Radiation Safety Committee, the Institutional Biological Safety Committee, and the ORA Institutional Stem Cell Research Committee. Click will help streamline the compliance process and will enhance security and application transparency for the investigator.

Kuali Coeus Implementation

In April 2017, Michigan State University implemented an enterprise-level research administration system, Kuali Coeus or KC, to manage sponsored projects throughout their lifecycle. The system manages grant proposals submitted to or funded by external (non-MSU) sources, both at the pre-award and award stages. The system also manages the submission and review of financial conflict of interest disclosures. KC enables 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.

Our Mission

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.
