These records document activities of Nancy D. Suttenfield, the Assistant Secretary for Finance and Administration, for 1991 fiscal year. Before October 1990 the office was known as the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration, headed by John F. Jameson.

The records contain correspondence and memoranda concerning financial aspects of major projects and functions as well as administrative activities of the Smithsonian museums, bureaus and programs. Most of the correspondence is between the Assistant Secretary and Secretary Robert McC. Adams, other Assistant Secretaries and museum, bureau and program directors and managers.
Other correspondence and memoranda with the Assistant Secretary are from the Departments of Treasury and Internal Revenue Service regarding disbursement costs and workload information; Office of Management and Budget, requesting information such as financial recommendations for fiscal year 1993; Office of Management Analysis; independent auditors concerning audit recommendations; correspondence with contractors concerning contracting procedures and policies; and correspondence with Congressman Sidney R. Yates, Chairman, House Representatives Subcommittee on Interior and Related Agencies Committee on Appropriations concerning budget hearings.
