Outside Activity

*The official transition to the new Cayuse system has been unexpectedly delayed. If advised by your Grants Manager, urgent research certification requests may be submitted to the COI Administrator email to be handled in the old Click Commerce system during the interim period.* As you would have seen in the recent Cayuse trainings, OSP will be using Cayuse Sponsored Projects, a web-based platform that replaces the Sponsored Programs Application (SPA). We are using Cayuse Outside Interests as part of this same platform to bring greater transparency and process improvements by linking COI reporting to sponsored projects within one system. If you missed the training, please visit OSP website for more information and access to the recording of the training:  


Additional roll-out information for Cayuse will be sent out once the go-live date is determined.


Outside Activity Reporting:

Have you acquired a new financial interest not previously reported in your Outside Activity Report? For example, new travel or consulting services?


Remember to update and submit your Outside Activity Report if you have acquired a new financial interest not previously reported in your Disclosure statement.  The PHS FCOI regulations require that you update your Disclosure(s) within 30 days to reflect any changes to your reported financial interests, including reimbursed or paid travel expenses, for federally funded research.


Please be sure to update your outside activity report and remove any disclosures that are 13 months old or older.
