        An investigation was initiated to determine whether NSF funds were affected by financial1
        mismanagement in a school district1as reported in an A-133 audit and newspaper article2 in
        2002.

        Our office contacted the superintendent of the school district3to discuss the A-133 audit findings
        and briefly the reports in the newspaper. The superintendent assured this office that the
        reportable conditions in the A-133 had no impact on the NSF program. The superintendent went
        on to explain that the monies awarded by NSF are not maintained or budgeted at the school level.
                                                                                                    4
        Our office requested and received the A-133 single audit report for FY2002 as well as FY2003.
        The reports have been reviewed and it is our conclusion that the mismanagement reported in the
        A- 133 report and the newspaper did not involve NSF monies. Accordingly, this case is closed.
