What is GeauxGrants?
GeauxGrants consists of four modules, each designed to handle specific research-related
tasks: conflicts of interest, sponsored projects, human subject research (IRB) and
animal subject research (IACUC).
The COI module handles disclosures of outside employment (PM-11), significant financial
interests (SFI), and externally funded travel. PM-11 disclosures apply to all LSU
employees, while SFI and externally funded travel disclosures only apply to those
who are an investigator currently active with externally funded research. LSU's policy
on financial conflicts of interest (PS-98) defines "investigator" as someone who is
responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of externally funded research, or
proposals for such funding. This includes any Principal or Co-Principal Investigator,
Senior Investigator or anyone regardless of title who is involved with an active funded
project or a project that has applied for outside funding. This applies to all externally
funded projects regardless of source or agency.

grant applications for research projects. This includes proposal development and pre-award
submission tasks, proposal tracking for managing approval routing, and award tracking.
