                              t'     that Subject l2 and Subject 23 defrauded NSF by using ineligible funds to
          match NSF funds under the rant^. After determining that there was insufficient evidence of fiaud,
          we referred the case to the Cost Analysis and Resolution Branch of the Division of Contracts, Policy
          and Oversight. Such referral, coupled with a concurrent audit finding in a state auditor's report,
          resulted in Subject 1 being required to repay NSF $53,900 in disallowed costs.

          This case is closed.
