We determined that allegation 4 was within the jurisdiction of the Office of Equal Opportunity. We conveyed the information to that office, and the complainant was actively involved in , discussion with that office-duringthis case. Within this allegation, the complainant raised the suspicion that the complainant's supervisors were inappropriately accessing the complainant's e- mail account. With the assistance of the Division of Information Services, we determined that the complainant's suspicions were unfounded. We could find no evidence to support allegations 5, and 6. . Allegation 7 describes issues to those being investigated in two preliminary files.4 The information relevant to those files has been transferred into them. This case is therefore closed. 3 4 II I NSF OIG Form 2 (1 1/02)
