Case Number: 1-15-04-0014                                                                      Page 1of1

         We initiated this investigation based on a referral from our Office of Audits, which learned that a
         university's 1 annual A-133 audit identified several instances of falsified payroll records, resulting
         in improper payments to employees whose time was being charged to federal awards.

         We contacted the university and reviewed financial records for three NSF awards to determine
         whether similar improprieties affected these awards. 2 We found no improper documentation for
         salary charges made to the three awards.

         Accordingly, this investigation is closed.
