There was a good book entitled, "The Administration of Sponsored Programs,"
by Beasley, Hensley, Hess, & Rodman (1982) - San Francisco, Jossey-Bass;
however, I think it is out of print.
I thought it was being updated. You might check with John Rodman to see
where it stands.
I don't know of anything on-line.
