NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM 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. 2 4 NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
