Kuali Research Tips

  • Complete a Kuali Research (KR) Proposal Development (PD) record: The PD will route to the appropriate office. Reference the PD number when reaching out for assistance.
  • Incoming Multi-Campus Awards (MCAs): Create a KR PD; Select the UC sister campus as the Sponsor
  • Outgoing Multi-Campus Awards (MCAs): Use the Kuali Research Subaward module
  • Federal Other Transaction Agreements (OTAs): Select 'Contract' to ensure it is routed to the correct Principal Officer

Contract Officer Roles

For Sponsored Research, proposals and awards are assigned by department and by sponsor-related service lines divided across three Contract and Grant (C&G) Officer roles. For Ancillary Research Agreements (ARA), material transfer agreements (MTAs) are assigned to the MTA Team and all other agreements are assigned to the ARA Team.
