         The National Science Foundation (NSF), Office of Inspector General (OIG), conducted a-random
         review of FY-01 awards, conferences, workshops and symposiums to assess compliance with
         applicable laws, regulations and award conditions.

         NSFIOIG sent an email to the university1 requested that they provide financial information and
         supporting documentation on an NSF award. The University supplied NSF with some of the
         requested materials. NSF sent a second letter requesting information and supporting
         documentation as to the disposition of the registration fee that was charged for the wo5kshop.

         The University responded that a third party organization received the registration fees to
         coordinate and manage the conference. The University did not receive any program income.

         Final Disposition:
         The university received no program income. Accordingly, t h s case is closed .
