NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: Al3050058 Page 1 of 1 NSF OIG received an allegation regarding misuse of funds in connection with a funded NSF proposa1. 1 Our analysis identified potentially problematic charges to the grant, so we contacted the Subject's 2 institution3 to request supporting documentation for the recorded expenses. Based on the information provided, we ascertained that the questionable costs were coded improperly in the university's accounting system. After requesting additional records to confirm the coding error, we determined that the spending on the grant appears to be on track and no unallowable charges were made. Therefore, there is no evidence to substantiate an allegation of misuse of funds. Accordingly, this case is closed with no further action taken. NSF OIG Form 4 (ll/02)
