Updating Grant and Contract Databases Arnie Aronoff 19 Jul 1994 11:52 EST

I am interested in learning how often institutions with proposal and award
databases automatically remove from their systems the following types of

Pending proposals in which the proposed project begin dates have passed but
notification of declination/rejection/withdrawal has not reached the grant
and contract office

Do offices which automatically purge such records from their databases do
so at fixed intervals--one year after the proposed project begin date?  two
years after the proposed project begin date?
