The Waite Institute Research Committee performed those functions which until 1981 were carried out by the Research and Publications Committee of the University of Adelaide. Upon adoption by Council of the recommendations of the Committee on the Waite Agricultural Research Institute (Mitchell Committee), these functions became the responsibility of the Institute. The Committee considered all requests and proposals pertaining to the allocation of research funds. It made recommendations to the Director concerning any new or amended policies relating to research funding and considered any other general or policy matter referred to it by the Director. Membership of the committee comprised four members of the academic staff nominated by the Director. The records consist of a summary of procedures and minutes of meetings over a nine year period.
