Case Number: 111080033                                                                    Page 1 of 1

         This case was opened when NSF OIG received an allegation that an employee 1 of a subawardee2
         on an NSF grant3 was presently debarred.

         Our investigation determined that the employee entered into the contract and subaward
         agreement on behalf of the subawardee while still debarred, and falsely certified in both
         documents to not being debarred. We recommended the employee and the subawardee be
         debarred 5 years. NSF debarred the employee and subawardee for 5 years.

         This case is closed with no further action taken.
