Colorado State University-Pueblo is a regional, comprehensive university emphasizing professional, career-oriented, and applied programs. Displaying excellence in teaching, celebrating diversity, and engaging in service and outreach, CSU-Pueblo is distinguished by access, opportunity, and the overall quality of services provided to its students.
As a primarily undergraduate institution, CSU-Pueblo needed an affordable, turnkey solution that would help increase productivity and improve grant and research oversight their small team.
At CSU-Pueblo, a small team managed the grant and research activities with mostly manual, paper-based processes. This made oversight and sponsored program administration very time-consuming and complex. CSU-Pueblo needed an affordable way to streamline their pre-award, post-award, and compliance management practices. They also needed a way to improve oversight with timely and reliable reporting.
Historically, comprehensive grant and research management solutions have been out of reach for Institutions like CSU-Pueblo due to the cost and complexity. Kuali’s affordable, turnkey solution will help CSU-Pueblo improve its research administration processes including online proposal development, electronic routing, approval, and submission of proposals; awards, subawards, and negotiations management; as well as IRB and financial conflict of interest management.
Implementation of Kuali Research is scheduled to begin late-2014.
