Budgets and Controller's Office Files, 1941-1976
Collection Description & Creator Information
The records produced by the Office of the Controller document University financial matters. Included among these materials are yearly university budgets and financial reports, indirect cost calculations, tax returns, payroll registers, and financial statements of various University organizations. Since the Controller has financial oversight of the entire University, the records provide information on costs and income as related to personnel, operations, facilities, campus organizations, and administration.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Some financial worksheets have been separated from the records. Ledgers containing transactional records were removed from the records according to the records retention schedule and in consultation with University Controller Kenneth Molinaro in 2018.
