NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: 111100042 Page 1 of 1 We assessed an allegation that an NSF employee 1 improperly forwarded interview questions and answers to a potential hire2 and authorized procurement card purchases for equipment that was not properly documented. 3 We found that the initial allegation was not substantiated; however, after reviewing procurement card purchases and the property tracking system report for the division, 4 we found that several items purchased and were not registered with NSF. 5 We met with the NSF employee 6 responsible for purchasing the questionable items. This employee successfully identified and provided documentation for the items in question. An additional allegation from the above stated NSF division claimed an NSF employee 7 had not properly returned division equipment upon reassignment to a new NSF division. Following contact with the NSF employee, 9 the equipment was promptly returned. 10 No further investigation is necessary. Accordingly, this case is closed.
