NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A12100074 Page 1 of 1 We reviewed an allegation that a PI 1 had submitted a proposaf to receive funding for work that he had substantially completed under a previous NSF award. 3 The proposal reviews contain comments related to the writing ability (e.g. , numerous grammatical errors) and poor grantsmanship (e.g. , failure to provide sufficient detail of work to be done relative to preliminary results). The program officer has recommended that NSF not fund the proposal. Given the low quality of the proposal, we conclude there is insufficient evidence to support the allegation that the PI sought to receive funding for work substantially completed. Accordingly, this case is closed. NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
