Reminder- Annual 2009 CRIS Reports were due on January 4h. Below is the memo that was sent out in November.

TO:                  Faculty and Staff

FROM:            Casey Hillmer

DATE:             November 24, 2009

RE:                   2009 Research Project Reports

DEADLINE: Monday, January 4, 2010

Again this year, we are requesting that you submit calendar year 2009 Experiment Station Project progress and termination reports to the Current Research Information System (CRIS) using CRIS Web Forms. These are required for all projects as listed, regardless if they are Formula Funded (Hatch/McIntire-Stennis) projects or not.

If you do not have access to a computer web browser, you can submit the reports with the assistance of your department office staff.  If you have questions or need assistance, please call Casey at 2-2397 or send an e-mail message to

The deadline for submitting 2009 CRIS reports is Monday, January 4, 2010.

Each year we have difficulty getting these reports submitted on time.  Please be aware that if the report(s) is/are not completed by Tuesday, January 19, 2010, we will not process any grant, contract, etc. materials for you until the report(s) has/have been completed.  It is important for CALS as recipients of Formula Funds to comply with this request.  All of our research activity is required to be reported in a CRIS report regardless of funding source.

*** If you are interested, Casey Hillmer is available to meet with you to demonstrate how to navigate through the CRIS system and to answer any questions you may have related to the CRIS forms. Please contact her at (608) 262-2397 or to set up a time.
