Montana State University in Bozeman is looking into grants directed by Michael Vogel, an Extension Service housing specialist, according to a university news release Wednesday.
The university is conducting a compliance review of the grants in response to a complaint, the release said.
The review is ongoing, and no conclusion has been reached.
“These are matters related to compliance of grant requirements,” the release said. “We have no evidence that funds have been misappropriated.”
Information about what the grants were and what agency granted them was not available Wednesday.
Vogel remains on the MSU and Extension staff, a university spokesperson said.

Vogel established the center in 1991 in partnership with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.
In July 2012, the program won two Telly Awards for an online home weatherization television program, “The Warmest Village in Alaska.”
In November 2012, Vogel was among those receiving the National Extension Diversity Award.
