DALLAS – The University of New Mexico has provided records for a widening federal investigation of suspected price-fixing in the municipal derivatives market but is not a target, officials said yesterday.

"The University of New Mexico is not a subject of any criminal investigation,” said spokeswoman Susan McKinsey.  “The University received a subpoena from the Department of Justice to produce documents relating to the university's issuance of bonds in 2002.  It is our understanding that the Department of Justice's request for the documents is not directed at the university's activities in issuing the bonds.”
