                           An NSF reviewer found that an SBIR Phase I proposal submitted by
                           duplicated work already funded by NASA two years prior. We investigated to determine
                                       had fraudulently obtained duplicate awards from different federal agencies to

                           We reviewed the NSF and NASA projects and found no evidence of duplication. During
                           the course of the review, however, we found potential duplicate proposals among two
                           Department of Defense (DoD) SBIR awards. We referred this case to the Defense
                           Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS) - Mid-Atlantic Field Office.

                           DCIS Special Agent                  reviewed the DoD proposals and found that the
                           company had                            of the other proposals. DCIS closed their file.

                           This case is closed.
