Cayuse SP FAQs
What is Cayuse SP?
Cayuse SP is a software tool which replaces the old routing sheet system (Proposal Management System). Cayuse SP will now be used to route and approve proposals, contracts, and other types of agreements internally.
I don’t see my Sponsor in the dropdown list. What should I do?
Many sponsors to which we regularly submit proposals have been pre-populated in Cayuse SP. If you are submitting to a sponsor that was not pre-populated, select “New Sponsor” and contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
