NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: Al2050031 Page 1 of 1 During a proactive review of recent awards, 1 NSF OIG identified a proposal 2 that contained copied text that was not appropriately cited. Some of the text lacking citations was identified as the PI's own work, and while the remaining copied text was not adequately distinguished from the PI's original text, the sources for the copied text were included in the proposal body and references. Thus, NSF OIG determined the PI' s3 actions did not rise to the level of research misconduct. PI was sent a questionable research practice letter reminding him to carefully and fully cite and distinguish all source materials. Accordingly, this case is closed. NS F 0 1G Form 2 (11/02)
