Get Ready…

Cloud Express (CX) is a new electronic research administration solution to be implemented in late August/early September. Built on open source, community-developed Kuali Coeus software, Cloud Express will provide Georgia Southern with electronic proposal development, proposal routing, awards tracking, and compliance management. To a large degree, this solution will replace paper-based processes while employing online workflows to improve efficiencies.  Compliance modules (IRB, IACUC and COI) will be implemented later in the year.  System training will be provided. Stay tuned for updates!
