The PI responded and provided documentary evidence indicating he had either co-authored the text we had annotated as copied or had used the annotated text with the approval ofthe proposal's international collaborator, a co- aut~or ofthe sources. 4 The allegation of plagiarism is therefore not substantiated. Accordingly, this case is closed and no further action will be taken. NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
