...

. The Foundation hereby approves payment of the Awardee's invoice
covering litigation costs with Knowledgenet, Inc. in the (reduced) amount
of $74,617. This amount includes only the actual cost of the litigation and
associated fee amount. 

. NSF authorizes the Awardee to invoice NSF via the Electronic Fund Transfer

Has the NSF really "withdrawn funding"...?

Is NSI funding ARIN...or is the NSF indirectly funding ARIN...?
