Introduction This item was carried over for discussion from the last several Board meetings. In order to facilitate final Board action at the current meeting, CC-B was asked to provide the Board with a resume of the current status of R&D projects which require use of Fiscal Year 1963 funds. 2. Discussion 25X1A opened the discussion by stating that would 25X1A report to the Board on the current status of R&D projects programmed for FY 1963s 25X1A after which would review the current status of projects undertaken in FY 62 with particular emphasis on those which might require additional funds in FY 63. In order to depict the current status of projects requiring FT 63 funds, 25X1A used a display board which illustrated the status of each project. This board listed on a horizontal line the name of the project, the type of effort involved, i.e., development, product improvement, study, etc., money letter designation, OC-E concurrence, CC-T liaison, and so co up to the time when the Director's letter is written awarding the development contract. Also shown on the board was data on the number of projects progranned for each quarter of the fiscal year and the total dollar figure for each quarter. The key to the section of this display which illustrates the current status of each project is the designator identifying the money letter for the project. Since this designator will be used on all correspondence going to Logistics concerning the project, it will clearly identify the project being dealt with in each letter, a point not always entirely clear in the text of these letters.
