 Case Number: I-17-0007-O                                                                   Page 1 of 1

         We initiated an investigation after receiving a communication from a program official,1 sharing
         information he said was received from a professor at a university,2 concerning potential misuse
         of NSF funds.

         We interviewed the professor, who expressed surprise that the matter had been shared with us.
         She explained that she discussed the matter with a the program official as a speculative
         possibility and that she does not believe there are any issues with the way NSF funds were, or are
         being used.

         Accordingly, this case is closed.
