Chico State Enterprises


Chico State Enterprises uses the web-based software Cayuse for the development and submission of grant and contract proposals. Additionally, Cayuse can be used for Institutional Review Board (IRB) applications for Human Subjects Research. 

The PI/project director’s first step in using Cayuse is to initiate a Cayuse proposal record. To do so, please see Cayuse Guidance and Tutorials.
