Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Claimed Federal Reimbursement For Unallowable Extramural Construction Costs Related to a National Institutes of Health Recovery Act Grant
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (Sloan-Kettering) claimed unallowable extramural construction costs related to a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Recovery Act grant totaling $126,000. Specifically, Sloan-Kettering claimed costs for the construction of a tunnel/service corridor ($121,000) and moving services ($5,500) that did not benefit the grant. Sloan-Kettering met all Recovery Act and NIH reporting requirements and milestone dates for project completion. We recommended that NIH require Sloan-Kettering to refund $126,000 to the Federal Government.
