Grants and Contracts

The Yale University Archives seeks to collect documentation concerning grant and contract administration. Specific topics of interest include:

  • Relationships with external agencies, governments, and individuals for services
  • Sources of funding for sponsored projects
  • Research initiatives supported by external agencies, governments, and individuals
  • New policy, procedures, initiative development in any of the above areas

Archival Records

Examples of records of interest to the Archives, regardless of format:

  • Annual reports
  • Grant proposals and final reports for funded projects
  • Legal opinion records
  • Policies, guidelines, and regulations for sponsored grants
  • Policies and procedures for contract and agreement negotiations
  • Records of the Corporation's Audit and Finance committees

Office of record

The Office of Grant and Contract Administration, the School of Medicine Grant and Contract Administration, and the treasurer maintain record copy documentation on grants and contracts at the university. Individual units operating outside the scope of the aforementioned units maintain record copy on all other documented contractual matters. Duplicates and related materials should be destroyed after they are no longer needed.
