NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: 112100071 Page 1 of 1 This case was opened on a company 1 from a proactive review of SBIR awards. In this case, contradictions were found in the proposal concerning the PI's primary place of employment with the company versus a website listing the PI's apparent employment with another entity? In addition, there was no confirmation that the company had adequate facilities to carry out the research. However, the· other entity verified that it did not employ the PI during the award, and the company provided a copy of a lease for facilities which were adequate to conduct the research. As a result, this case is closed. 2 NSF 010 Form 2 (11/02)
