Transition from PureEdge to Adobe-based forms
As you may know, NIH and many other federal funding agencies are transitioning from PureEdge to the Adobe-based form set ( As a Cayuse424 user this transition affects you in the following ways:

1) The transition from PureEdge to the Adobe-Forms, from a proposal development perspective, will be completely transparent to Cayuse424 users. Once the Adobe packages are published you can download and use them immediately.

2) This transition will cause a short-term printing difference between what you see in Cayuse424 and what the final proposal looks like when it reaches the funding agency. The Adobe forms look different than what you are used to seeing on the funding agency sites (NIH in particular). Cayuse will be phasing in the new “print style” over the next couple of releases.

3) If you log in and your proposal has expired, indicated by the “red circle with a slash through it” icon in both your Proposal tab and the opportunity repository in Cayuse424, call or email your CALS Research Division pre-award contact for assistance. In some rare cases, an alternate form set will be needed, and the Research Division will be happy to help you if that is the case.
