NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: Al1090065 Page 1 of 1 We assessed an allegation that a PI 1 provided incomplete information in the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support sections of multiple proposals submitted to NSF _2 We concluded that the PI omitted pertinent information about his external appointments and research support in eight submitted NSF proposals, including one awarded proposal. The cognizant NSF Program officer for the awarded proposal stated that the missing information would be relevant to review of his proposals, but there did not appear to be duplicative research. The PI also did not disclose his external appointments and research support to his university, and the university determined that these actions violated university policy. The PI subsequently resigned from his faculty position. We wrote a Questionable Research Practice letter to the subject. Accordingly, this case is closed. NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
