The Grants module allows investigators to prepare and route their applications electronically for institutional approval.  The module also has a system-to-system feature that allows for the direct electronic submission of most federal proposals to the sponsoring agency.  Investigators who are submitting proposals will need to go into the system to initiate the application and complete a few basic steps.  With the help of the Grant and Contract Administrators, budgets will be developed and proposal documents will be uploaded.  Once completed, it will be routed for electronic review and approval.
