         During a peer review meeting, a panelist' identified allegedly plagiarized text in a proposal2
         where the source document was an NSF proposal3 she had previously been involved in
         developing. The amount of plagiarized text was de minimus. We used a plagiarism software
         analyze the entire proposal and found no additional text that was common to other published
         documents.

          Since the amount of copied text was de minimus, we will take no further action.   Accordingly,this
          case is closed.
