Beginning January 1, 2014 all proposals at Miami University must be routed through the eSPA system (Cayuse Research Suite).

The OARS staff has been hard at work getting our new electronic sponsored programs administration, or eSPA, system (Evisions Cayuse 424/SP) ready to roll out to the Miami community. Our campus-wide training sessions began on October 29 and will continue to be offered on numerous dates at various times through January 2015.

Online registration is required for these 90 minute sessions, which will provide an overview of the on-line system, and a walk-through of the steps involved in creating a proposal record, building a proposal, routing the proposal for approvals, and monitoring proposal and award activity.

Implementation of the new on-line system will begin on January 1, 2015, at which point paper routing forms will no longer be accepted.  All faculty and staff will be required to use the new eSPA system for the submission of all external grant proposals beginning January 1, 2015.

If you are involved in submitting proposals for external funding, we strongly encourage you to attend one or more of the following sessions (click on the date to register).  All sessions are in the B.E.S.T. Library instructional space, 116 Laws Hall.
