-, CLOSEOUT FOR M99040025 On April 30, 1999, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) learned of possible mismanagement of government fbnding by an educational training center.' According to the complainant, the pilot program for computer training at this educational training center was plagued by computer crashes and chronic mi~mana~ement.~ The complainant believed the pilot program was funded by the federal government. By searching NSF grant databases, we concluded that NSF did not provide any government funds to the pilot program. An internet search revealed three private organizations3 and one government agency4 associated with the educational testing center, which might provide additional information andlor assist in the resolution of these complaints. OIG provided the complainant with this information. As NSF funding is not involved in this pilot program, OIG closed this case and will take no further action. cc: Scientific Attorney, Integrity, IG ' Footnote redacted. Footnote redacted.
