Case Number: 1-16-0113-0                                                                   Page 1 of 1



        This investigation was initiated pursuant to allegations that a Principal Investigator 1 (PI) at a
        University2 paid the complainant's 3 postdoctoral salary with NSF award funds, but for work
        outside the scope of the NSF awards. In addition, the complainant alleged that the PI retaliated
        against him for reporting concerns about his salary to her and the University's Human Resources
        department.

         We reviewed documentation provided by the complainant and the University, as well as, NSF
         award files, and found no evidence to substantiate the complainant's allegation. We reviewed the
         complainant's retaliation allegation and detennined that our office did not have jurisdiction to
         investigate the matter.

         Accordingly, this investigation is closed.
