A review records found sufficient evidence to refer the matter to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) for potential violations of the Hatch Act. OSC sent a letter to one employee2 warning to not conduct partisan political activities in the workplace, and pursued disciplinary action against the other. Our office examined the second employee's misconduct in relation to NSF and OGE regulations. We concluded the matter should be closed without further investigatory effort. This case is closed with no further action taken. NSF OIG Form 2 (11 /02)
