NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: I05070029 Page 1 of 1 This investigation was initiated based on a referral from an NSF program director, who notified us that the owner of a business' appears to be inappropriately acting on behalf of companies that are associated with a university.2 The program director said it is unclear if there is a separation between the business owner and the university and there maybe undisclosed conflicts between the business owner and the university. We contacted the general counsel for the university, who informed us that the business owner has not held an official position with the university since 1995. The general counsel stated t F t the business owner does lease space from the university research and technology park. Since the business owner's only current connection with the university is a lease in a technology park, we find no evidence to support M h e r investigation. This matter is closed.
