NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: 1-11020002 Page 1 of 1 We received an allegation that a company 1 may have received duplicate funding for the same work from multiple federal agencies including NSF. We examined the potentially duplicative awards and determined that the awards funded distinct research. The allegation was not substantiated. During the course of the investigation, we identified a separate company2 that may have overstated expenses on NSF reports regarding one of its awards. We reviewed the company's award expenditures and found no improper expenses. We concluded that the apparent misstatements in the reports were administrative errors with no intent to deceive. Thus, we did not substantiate misconduct witli regard to this company. This case is closed with no further action taken. NSF OIG Form 2 (11102)
