Special Retrievals Requests have been made for listingstlimited to our component and arranged by project number, byfact.ivity code, and by project number blocks.

Much time is lost ih verifying numbers. d. Procedural - The introduction of!S49 prevents us from obtain- ing valid machine runs on the activities of our branch. It has caused confusion among branches. A weekly listing of S49 projects is circulated. Since the'projects are not easily identified, branches have cancelle4 other branches projects. Rejoice! Forms used by employees daily to record project numbers and'titie could?be eliminated. Much time would be saved. Approved For Release 2008/06/09: CIA-RDP73T00325R000100080009-6
