Among the subjects included are: the accommodations of Military Observers and Civilian Police; the rental of vehicles and office space; claims made for damages to property and unpaid bills; and construction and renovation work.

The BOI Unit records include reports of the Headquarters Board of Inquiry and case files of the Board of Inquiry. Case files are arranged in numerical order and may contain lists of summary disposal cases, convening orders, incident reports, Military Police Investigation Reports (MPIR), Civilian Police Investigation Reports, damage/discrepancy reports, motor vehicle accident reports, sketches and photographs of crime/accident scenes, autopsy reports, witness statements, and other evidence submitted to the BOI.

The documents from the UNAMIR office in Nairobi include correspondence between UNAMIR and United Nations headquarters in New York as well as the president and ministers of Rwanda. Also present are internally- and externally-produced reports about the Rwandan crisis (including some by Amnesty International and the InterAfrica Group).
