Coeus was created by MIT to assist in the development of all funded research proposals and direct electronic submission to federal agencies using Grants.gov. The purpose of the system is to simplify and make the proposal preparation and submission process more efficient. The proposals are created, routed for internal approval and, if applicable, submitted to sponsor - all electronically! If the proposal is system to system compatible, Coeus will import all the necessary forms from grants.gov for the specific funding opportunity identified in the proposal. These forms will be filled out automatically from the data entered on the Coeus screens.
Coeus is the single data repository of all pre-award research activity. ALL proposals will need to be entered into Coeus whether they are submitted electronically (Grants.gov or other ERA portal) via email, or hardcopy submission. If a proposal cannot be submitted system to system the proposal still needs to be uploaded into Coeus for routing and approval and then also uploaded to whichever system the sponsor requires.
PROPOSALS NEED TO BE COMPLETELY FINISHED AND SUBMITTED FOR APPROVALS IN COEUS 5 WORKING DAYS BEFORE THE PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE TO ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR THOROUGH REVIEW AND POTENTIAL CHANGES IF NECESSARY AND FOR THE OFFICE FOR SPONSORED PROGRAMS TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH ALL THE RULES AND REGULATIONS WHEN THE PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED.
