Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains clippings about the indirect cost controversy and the federal inquiry in the early 1990s into Stanford's procedures regarding federally funded research.
The Stanford Indirect Costs controversy was a dispute between Stanford and the U.S. government in the early 1990s over research costs. The government filed a case against Stanford claiming the university overestimated indirect research costs. Stanford also filed a case against the government for underpaying the university. This dispute ended with both parties dropping their cases and settling. In doing so, the government acknowledged there was no fraud nor wrongdoing committed by Stanford.
