Proposal Routing and Submission

The CLICK portal is a new tool that replaces the previous ESPAS system.

Please use the CLICK Portal Login to create and review your approval form.

Accounts have been created for faculty and staff at the University at Buffalo. Faculty and staff users will log into the system using their UBITName and Password.

The Grants module Funding Proposal contains SmartForms, which depending on the specific sponsor type and how the Funding Proposal will be submitted, as well as how certain individual trigger questions throughout the Funding Proposal are answered, may trigger the creation of additional forms that require completion. For example, Yes to the Human Subjects question will trigger an additional human subjects-related page; this new page will not be triggered if the original Human Subjects question is answered No.

Enter the required information into each SmartForm. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*). Select the Continue button at either the top-right or the bottom right of each form once completed. Data is auto-saved via the Continue button.

NOTE: You may contact RAS staff at any time for more information and/or assistance with uploading information to CLICK.

If a PI wishes to initiate the CLICK approval form, he/she may Log into CLICK.
