An OGC official, 4 who was informed ofthe email, instructed directorate officials 5 to terminate the IP A. In addition NSF contacted our office in regard to this matter. We reviewed the relevant email and interviewed the two POs and a directorate official. 6 We determined that the agency's termination of the IP A adequately protected the interests of NSF.
