NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A13010013 Page 1 of 1 We received an allegation that a Subjece submitted a proposal2 containing plagiarism. We were also told that the Subject subsequently contacted NSF to withdraw the plagiarized proposal, falsely stating he had submitted a draft instead of the final version, and that he had created a final proposal, in case NSF contacted him. We reviewed for plagiarism the Subject's proposal and three similar proposals 3 he submitted and did not identify verbatim plagiarism in any ofthe Subject's four proposals. We further determined the Subject never submitted to NSF the "final" proposal he created. Accordingly, this case is closed with no further action taken. 2 NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
