Streamlyne Phase I: Proposal Development and Routing System

 

Change is Coming: GoldSheet and Cardinal Sheet will be Sunsetted in June 2023

After 20+ years of service to Iowa State, the GoldSheet and Cardinal Sheet will be discontinued in June of 2023.  These internal routing forms and related systems will be replaced with Streamlyne, an enhanced “one-stop shop” proposal development and routing system that will offer campus research faculty and administrators an abundance of new features and functionalities.

With Streamlyne:

  • Former processes will be enhanced
  • Sponsored programs and gifts will be in one system
  • Budget development will include salary integration
  • Requests for NDAs and MTAs will be initiated
  • A dashboard will provide process visibility at all submission stages
  • A system-to-system (S2S) portal for grants.gov will remove duplicate entry

Introductory demonstrations will be held starting in December 2022 and user training will begin in Spring 2023.  Additional details and registration openings will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

New System Key Concepts

The overarching goal of the new proposal development and routing system is to support the external funding proposal development process in a manner that makes information more accessible for all stakeholders and removes pain points for both PIs and administrators.  The new cloud-based system will improve functionality, increase efficiencies, and add more value to the proposal development, budget and budget justification, proposal routing and approval, and proposal submission processes.

  • Combine GoldSheet and Cardinal Sheet into one integrated system used for both sponsored projects and gifts
  • Access to a proposal development dashboard with increased visibility and transparency of process and content at all stages of the proposal process
  • Able to feed information into grants.gov system-to system (S2S) portal for proposal submissions and into the Kuali Coeus Institutional Proposals system module
  • Allow for dynamic routing with ability to make changes and to return proposal/form for rework
  • Allow for replacement of Kuali Coeus Award, Subaward, and Negotiation modules at a later implementation date (Phase II)
