Case Number: 115050019                                                                       Page 1of1



                 We received an allegation that a professor1 was misusing grant funds received through his
         university2 to fund activities for his company. 3 We requested and reviewed records from the
         university for four awards 4 under this professor's direction and interviewed relevant NSF program
         officials. We did not substantiate any allegations of misuse of NSF funds for the professor's
         company, but noted that some of the project participants charged to the award were not listed in
         annual project reports. We provided the grantee with a letter advising of its obligations to submit
         full and complete reports, particularly regarding project participants, going forward.

                  This case is closed with no further action taken.
