1                      An audit review of conference awards found indications of otential duplicate charging of travel

                       Conference trip

                                                                    n conjunction with


                      We asked for travel vouchers and source documents for conference tr
                      from Dr.               ome institution and for the last 5 years from th
                                            ent us a total of six travel vouchers an
                      documents for one conference.

                      Both institutions sent us travel documents fdr one trip to a 1 9 9 E o n f e r e n c e , in Seattle,

                      In addition, th
                                               confirmed that
                                              Conference and received reimbursement.
                      the total amount they reimbursed and identified each travel expense.        e found no evidence of
                      duplicate travel reimbursements to Dr             for this trip.

Although the initial audit review suggested potential fraudulent activity, we have found no
evidence of duplicate travel reimbursements to Dr. r             the one trip we have source
documents for the 19 9 7 m p .

No further review is warranted at this time. Case is closed.
