Federally Sponsored Research at Educational Institutions: A Need for Improved Accountability. Report by the U.S. General Accounting Office.
General Accounting Office, Washington, DC.
This report discusses federally sponsored research at educational institutions and suggests ways to improve accountability for these funds. The following suggestions are made for minimizing problems presented in this report: (1) development of more definitive cost principles for both the institutions and the Federal auditors to follow; (2) more active involvement of internal auditors at the institutional level; (3) more oversight by grantor agencies with respect to how research moneys are being spent; and (4) increased Federal audit effort.
