NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM We requested and received the grant's general ledgers fiom the institution. We selected 236 general ledger entries for which we requested and received supporting documentation. Analysis of the provided records revealed certain unsupported and otherwise potentially questionable costs, but no evidence of wrongdoing. In the meantime, the institution's A-133 audit revealed significant internal control issues and questioned costs. Since the Office of Audit (OoA) was assessing whether to conduct additional audit work as a result of the A-133 audit, we referred the information we had gleaned to OoA and recommended that an audit be performed. Because we could find no evidence of wrongdoing, and the anonymous complainant provided none, this case is closed. NSF 01G Form 2 (1 1/02)
