NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: 1-10090045 Page 1 of 1 We conducted an investigation into SBIR/STTR awards made to a small business. 1 Our investigation determined the PI2 violated a condition of the small business innovation research program during significant portions of the SBIR/STTR awards. However, because the violations occurred outside of the applicable statute of limitations, and due to conflicting or missing records of a third party, 3 we pursued this matter administratively. We notified the PI of the violations and the PI returned $46,3 97 to NSF. In addition, we referred the third party institution to NSF's Award Monitoring and Business Assistance Program due to its inadequate record keeping practices. Accordingly, this case is closed.
