NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM I Case Number: 103110064 Page 1 of 1 This matter was opened as part of a Program Income review of conference grants. Initial review identified that the grantee' provided questionable responses to our initial review and may have overpaid a consultant. Based on the inadequate initial response, we sent a follow-up request and asked for a more detailed response and questioned the daily rate provided to a consultant. The grantee provided a thorough and adequate response. The grantee provided detailed explanations of all expenditures related to the conference grant. The grantee also explained that the consultant's daily rate actually consisted of direct and indirect cost. Therefore, we determined that the consulting fee was allowable. ~ Accordingly, this case is closed. I' NSF OIG Form 2 ( 1 1/02)
