NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM 11 Case Number: 102100028 In October 2002, OIG was contacted for the second time by a graduate student at a University. The student stated that his advisor, who started a small company, had him working on company projects but did not pay him or give him any credit. He also stated that his advisor took his work and was trying to get funding for it without giving him credit for the work or the idea. Despite numerous attempts to get the necessary information to evaluate the complainant's claim, OIG has not received any documentation to substantiate the allegation. Accordingly, this case is closed. Investigator Attorney Supervisor AIGI I Sign / date NSF OIG Form 2 (11102)
