Streamlyne Implementation

The Office of Research and KU IT are pleased to announce a partnership with Vivantech to launch Streamlyne Research in fiscal year 18 as the pre-award system of record for all sponsored project proposals. Vivantech is a technology firm specializing in the higher education and research institution sector for nearly 15 years, and Streamlyne Research is its flagship offering.

Streamlyne was selected to replace the database functionality of the PeopleSoft Grants proposal module.  In addition, Streamlyne will be used for System-to-System proposal submission to federal sponsors, proposal approval routing, and proposal document storage. Combining these services into one integrated system promises to promote efficiency, accuracy and transparency.

We expect that the implementation of Streamlyne will necessitate some changes in pre-award business processes. As we plan for this transition, we will endeavor to keep the research community informed and engage their feedback through a variety of venues, including the following:
