Case Number: A13030044                                                                        Page 1 of 1



                 We assessed an allegation that a principal investigator (PI) 1 did not disclose an external
         appointment on his biographical sketch included with submitted NSF proposals. 2 We established
         that the appointment did not trigger related financial conflicts of interests at the university, and
         did not compromise proposal review at NSF. We reminded the PI's university3 of the need for
         full and accurate disclosure of external appointments.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
