Working Papers 6 and 7 indicate the nature of documentation that should be prepared by the grantee of an experimental construction project to insure a fair and accurate compliance to federal audit. SWRL's documented experience in consolidating and moving its operations to the new facility is contained in Working Paper 8, while the planning and activities for the building dedication ceremonies are described in Working Paper 9. Working Paper 10 describes the operations studies in the area of custodial and grounds maintenance services. The results of an operational study are included in Working Paper 11.
