NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A12110076 Page 1 of 1 An NSF division director 1 was alleged to have terminated inappropriately a program officer' s2 Intergovernmental Personal Act (IP A) assignment. IP A assignments may be terminated by NSF without cause. However, a review of relevant internal email records show that the division had reasonable concerns about program integrity and workload management to support terminating the IP A assignment. There is insufficient evidence to support concluding that the division director improperly discouraged other NSF divisions from offering the program officer a position. Accordingly, this case is closed. 2 NSF OIG Form 2 (11102)
