Arizona Researcher Settles Case Involving Grant Fraud
On September 27, 2019, Dr. Ravi Goyal entered into a $73,975 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Dr. Goyal submitted or caused to be submitted three invoices from a third party to his university, an NIH grantee, while failing to disclose to the university that funds paid to the third party would ultimately flow to a company Dr. Goyal owned. The university was reimbursed from NIH grant funds for the funds it paid to the third party. Senior Counsel Michael Torrisi and Associate Counsel Dennis Pangindian represented OIG.
