 Case Number: A12060045                                                                      Page 1 of 1



                  A PI 1 wrote to the National Science Foundation to withdraw his proposal forprojectrenewae
         and indicated that any unauthorized use of his proposal by the grantee institution3 would be
         plagiarism. The OIG coordinated with the Program Director4 to request information from the grantee
         institution about their plans to maintain compliance with the Proposal and Award Policies and
         Procedures Guide (P APPG). The grantee institution replied that they would submit a letter to
         request a change in PI and withdraw the renewal proposal. Accordingly, this case is closed.
