According to the Washington Post (AP) here, Yale University has received federal agency subpoenas for documents. It is not surprising to see Yale "urging" employees to cooperate. If in fact there were accounting irregularities, cooperation could prove crucial to Yale and the federal government reaching an agreement. A resolution could be very important to a university that obtains substantial funding from the federal government.
But whether the university's recommended approach will prove beneficial for individual researchers may be a different matter.
