Given the complexity of grant management, institutions need a solution to manage all of the moving parts and maximize initial and ongoing funding. Now, you can streamline your pre-award and post-award management with Cloud Express.

Create proposals anywhere, anytime with online access. Log into Cloud Express with your campus credentials and a web browser. Initiate a proposal by completing required fields. Collaborate with others throughout proposal development.
Multiple users can collaborate on a proposal at once. Easily collaborate with PIs, Administrators, Dept. Chairs, and others throughout the process. Automated workflow speeds approval processes. Security permissions ensure that users only have access to information and functionality that aligns with their job role and responsibilities.
Prior to submission, validation and error checking notifies you of any issues. A convenient ‘fix’ button makes it easy to resolve errors. Proposals can be submitted electronically to Grants.gov or if your institution isn’t using Grants.gov, you can download a complete PDF package for email and/or print.
After award notification, easily create an award document. The proposal budget is linked to the Award and auto-populates proposal information which eliminates the need to re-key proposal info and reduces data entry errors.
