KC Downtime TONIGHT (03/23)

Dear Kuali Coeus Community,

KC will be down tonight, 03/23/2016, from 8:00PM-8:30PM for the March deployment. During this 30-minute period, KC will be unavailable. Please read below for exciting enhancements and fixes included in this month’s deployment.


Proposal Development


As a part of our continuing efforts to reduce administrative burden for UCI’s researchers and their support staff, the Office of Research has announced a streamlined procedure for complying with the State of California’s requirement that Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PIs) disclose their financial interests in non-governmental sponsors of UCI’s research via form 700U. The new procedure is effective tomorrow, 03/24/2016. See attached email as reference.


Changes to the questions contained in the Conflict of Interest questionnaire on the Questions tab in KC are based on this exciting change.

  • Updated questions in COI Questionnaire to follow parent-child format. The second question will only appear when YES is answered to the first question. Similarly, the third question will only appear when the second question is YES.
    • Upon proposal finalization by SPA, if the third question “Did the PI or Co-PI disclose a financial interest on their uploaded Form 700U(s)?” is marked YES, a notification will be sent to the COI admin team who will take further action.


  • On the Proposal tab, on the Required Fields for Saving Document, added “select” to Award Type and made a required field in order to ensure accurate selection.
    • When copying a proposal, the Award Type will copy to the new proposal.


  • On the Summary tab, on the Attachments panel, the label “Institutional Attachments” was incorrect and has been changed to “Internal Attachments”.
  • From the Development Proposal Lookup in Zot!Portal, Assigned Officer was added as lookup criteria and results



Cayuse 424 Phase II: Data Synchronization


  • Cayuse permissions assigned to KC Approvers: updated to Read, List and Print access
  • In order for the eRA group to more effectively address permission errors, more information was provided through a ServiceNow ticket
  • Unpair Cayuse proposal and KC document upon confirmation of cancel/terminate/disapprove
  • Other technical enhancements

If you have any questions regarding this month’s deployment, please contact me directly.
