Research Administration — InfoEd

Tools for grant proposal tracking, grant submissions, and post-award management.

Also known as Grants Management System, InfoEd.

CUIT’s Research Services team manages and administers several modules for the InfoEd Grant Management application, a service that assists faculty, administrators and staff to move efficiently through each part of the grant and contract process from proposal development to post award management.

InfoEd modules include:

  • Proposal Development
  • Proposal Tracking
  • Post Award Management
  • SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network)
  • SMARTS (SPIN Matching and Research Transmittal Service)
  • Genius (Global Expertise Network for Industry, Universities and Scholars)

The Proposal Development module is currently used for creating National Institute of Health (NIH) and other proposals that are required to be submitted electronically through Grants.Gov.

Proposal, Award, Financial Tracking Modules are used by Sponsored Projects Administrative (SPA) staff to track and manage proposals, awards, and accounts.
