                 We assessed an allegation that a proposal 1 submitted to NSF failed to disclose related
         previous work. Examination of the proposal text and figures, accompanying documents, and the
         stated research goals shows no evidence of misappropriation of credit for previous work, or
         willful nondisclosure of this work.

                   Accordingly, this case is closed.
