Kuali Coeus Downtime for Upgrade
Kuali Coeus will be taken offline at 10pm this evening Wednesday, May 4, 2016 as we implement the new NIH D-forms. (Please refer to Bernadette Vallely's 'NIH News' email sent to the ra_ls list on May 5, 2016.) We anticipate the system will be offline for 1 hour, with service resuming at 11pm.
Please contact the KC Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions you may have.
Note that COI disclosures must still be filed through the Coeus Lite site.
New federal awards issued after December 26, 2014 are subject to UG. Federal awarding agencies have published interim, agency-specific implementation plans. Visit the Uniform Guidance Basics page for more information and updates as they become available.
