Jackson State University agreed to pay $1.17 million to settle charges it violated the False Claims act by mismanaging National Science Foundation grants.  Specifically, a 2012 NSF audit identified salary and non-salary expenditures by Jackson State that were unallowable, not allocable, and/or had insufficient, inadequate and/or no supporting documentation.  A subsequent NSF investigation determined that, in preparation for the audit, and subsequently in response to the preliminary audit findings, Jackson State fabricated time and effort reports and provided them to the auditors, and in some instances presented inadequate and/or no supporting documentation.  DOJ (SDMS)
