NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A13020018 Page 1 of 1 Closeout We received an allegation that a PI (Subject) 1 plagiarized in an NSF Proposaf from a journal article he previously published. Although copying his own text does not meet NSF's definition of research misconduct, we conducted a review to determine whether the Subject was requesting federal funding for work that had already been completed. Our review determined that the NSF proposal was not proposing work that had already been completed, but rather appeared to propose an extension of prior work along with a novel goal. Accordingly, this case is closed. NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
