Kuali Coeus Electronic Document Storage (EDS)

Kuali Coeus Electronic Document Storage is a digital MIT initiative to reduce paper, improve access and streamline workflow. EDS enables 24/7 access to Institute Proposal and Award, and Subaward documents for all research stakeholders.

Kuali Coeus EDS Project Documents Page

KC EDS Project Documents provides authorized users one-stop access to documents linked to an award across modules (Development Proposal, Institute Proposal, Award, Subaward). A PI does not require a Kuali Coeus role. Access requires up-to-date MIT Certificates. PIs can access the page from their KC Dashboard via the Project Documents tab in My Research Activity by clicking on the View link next to a given award. Users can also be access the page via the EDS action in Award Search Results.

Kuali Coeus EDS within Modules

Users can also access Institute Proposal, Award, and Subaward documents via the Attachments section in each module. Users can navigate between linked Awards and Proposals via Medusa. Ability to view documents is based on users’ DLC authorizations. The authorizations need to match Lead Unit of Award or IP while for Subawards the authorizations need to match Requisitioner Unit.

Document Types and Naming Conventions

The Award Attachment Types and Institute Proposal Attachment Types tables provide guidance on which sort of project documents are uploaded, as well as which type, and what info the naming conventions convey.
