These records consist largely of files on research projects that had been awarded funds which were administered by the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP). The files contain project budgets, staff resumes, correspondence and memoranda about the progress of the projects, and some final reports or research publications that resulted from the projects. Also included are OSP budget files for fiscal years 1989-1991. The records also contain a number of audit reports dating from the early 1960s, and produced by outside agencies such as the Department of Defense. In addition, they contain overhead reports dating from FY 1960 through FY 1993.
