 Case Number: 1-10-08-0040                                                                  Page 1 of 1

         This investigation was opened based on information that a university1 potentially received
         overlapping grants from NSF 2 and another federal agency.

         Investigation, which included interviews of the program officers of both agencies revealed that
         there was initially some overlap in the two proposals; however, the program officers negotiated a
         resolution which removed the overlapping objective and corresponding funding in one of the
         proposals. The university was able to proceed with both awards.

         Accordingly, this investigation is closed.
