Overview

In 2012, Towson University set a strategic goal to transform all paper-based processes related to research administration and primary compliance support to an electronic format. As a primarily undergraduate institution, the central office manages approximately 400 proposals per year, but had limited capital resources, a slim training budget, and was required to use only existing staff positions to accomplish their goal.

In 2012, Towson University set a strategic goal to transform all paper-based processes related to research administration and primary compliance support to an electronic format.  As a primarily undergraduate institution, the central office manages approximately 400 proposals per year. At the time, it had limited capital resources, a slim training budget, and was required to use only existing staff positions to accomplish it’s goal.

Solution

After a formal evaluation, Towson selected Kuali Research in the Cloud, an open source, community-developed software, to streamline the many tasks involved in pre-award, post-award and compliance management within a single, cloud-based system. Implementation of Kuali Research is now complete at Towson University.
