Policy Update

Cayuse along with Pre-Award policies and guidelines (where applicable) have been updated to include a verification process to confirm that PI’s and/or key personnel have not been suspended or debarred by the federal government from engaging with or working on Federal awards.  This verification process will take place during the internal clearance process, prior to submission of any proposal and prior to award acceptance for funded proposals.

Cayuse now includes a Certification statement, indicating that the PI certifies that Co-PI’s and other Key Personnel are not currently debarred, suspended or ineligible to receive federal funds or participate in federally funded grants or contracts. If you are not sure what this certification means or requires, please contact your assigned Pre-Award Specialist for more information. Additionally, at the time of award acceptance, ORED will conduct a sam.gov check to verify that PI’s and key personnel are not debarred or suspended.

Federal Regulations Requirements:
