NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A06110057 Il Page 1 of 1 Based on an allegation received by our office, we decided to review two additional awards' with travel funds budgeted. From the institution2,I requested the records (i.e., list of travel transactions and supporting documentation) for all travel expenses incurred by the two awards. According to the institution, the PI^ on one of the awards reallocated the $6,936 in travel funds to support an additional PhD student. The PI provided a signed statement affirming the reallocation. The second award's budget included $6,500 in travel. The institution expended $9,447 in travel. I reviewed all of the documentation provided and determined each expenditure was reasonable and allowable. No mismanagement of travel funds appears to have occurred on either of these grants since it was not necessary to review travel documents for the first award, and the transactions for the second award appear allowable. Accordingly, this case is closed. -- - . -- - - --- NSF OIG Form 2 (1 1/02)
