NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: I07020006 Page 1 of 1 We investigated a matter that arose out of a proactive review to determine whether the awardee (University) reported and properly expended program income. It appeared from the review of an NSF award,' that the university had not reported program income in the FCTR as required, despite the fact that it appeared to have collected registration fees for the funded conference. Therefore, NSF OIG requested that the University provide information and supporting documentation for program income earned and expended for the award at issue. The University originally responded that it had collected registration fees3 for the conference, but later informed NSF OIG that it had erred, and that the program income initially reported was actually earned from other previous unrelated awards. Further, the University provided supporting documentation to establish that the NSF award funds were used to fund participant support (including registration fees) for individuals to attend the conference(s), not to host or produce the conference at issue, so that no registration fees were collected or program income earned with respect to the NSF award. Accordingly, this case is closed. ' Redacted Redacted Redacted SF OIG Fonn 2 (11/02) "
