Tennessee Electronic Research Administration (TERA) System
In July 2010, the COEUS system at UT was phased out and replaced by the Tennessee Electronic Research Administration (TERA) system. TERA incorporates aspects of COEUS and other related systems and provides greater, more streamlined functionalities. TERA’s primary module the Proposal and Award Management System (PAMS) is the module used for proposal creation, electronic routing and approval, and award maintenance.
