Abstract The Proposal Development Initiative (PDI) began informally in the fall of 1994 with efforts by administrators in the university's Division of Graduate Studies and Research to encourage new research proposals. By January 1995, the PDI was formally established with a part-time director. On 1 May 1996, a full-time director was appointed. PDI assumed several of the responsibilities previously assigned to the Office of Research Services, chiefly assisting researchers in developing structural and funding strategies. The director of the Proposal Development Initiative reported briefly to the Associate Vice Chancellor (later Associate Vice Provost) for Research Development, then directly to the Vice Provost for Graduate Studies and Research. Sometime in the mid-2000s, the name of the Proposal Development Initiative changed to Office of Research Development. Records consist mostly of grant proposals, 1995-2001, and related correspondence. There are also files related to the administration and operation of the Proposal Development Initiative, including correspondence, annual reports, and materials related to programs and workshops conducted by the PDI. Files are mostly those of Jacqueline Resnick, director of the PDI. The Chancellor's Information Technology Awards, 1996-1998, are particularly well documented.
