The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Inspector General (OIG) will be conducting an audit of the University of Houston’s NSF awards. NSF OIG has contracted with the Certified Public Accounting firm, Cotton and Company LLP, to conduct the audit on their behalf. Cotton and Company is a highly reputable firm and has performed numerous audits for the NSF OIG over the past several years.

We received the attached audit notification letter describing the scope of the engagement and Cotton and Company followed-up shortly thereafter with a list of the items needed for an upfront review and to schedule an entrance conference.

We ask for your assistance and cooperation as we engage with the auditors, and we may reach out to you for additional backup documentation or advice.


Please contact Beverly Rymer or Grace Rosanes if you have any questions or concerns.
