NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: 113070042 Page 1 of 1 We opened an investigation on a company 1 pursuant to information developed in a separate NSF OIG investigation? Allegedly, the company was selling the NSF logo as part of their internet-related product. 3 We made a purchase of the product,4 and identified two individuals 5 and three addresses 6 that appeared to be connected to the company. We interviewed both individuals and neither had ever heard of the company or lived/worked at the identified addresses. We interviewed individuals 7 at the identified addresses and, again, nobody had heard of the company. Through open source information we subsequently determined that the company operates overseas and is outside our jurisdiction. Accordingly, this investigative case is closed with no further action necessary. NSF OIG Form 2 (11102)
