NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: Al3080080 Page 1of1 We received an allegation that a PI's 1 annual reports listed grant products (conference abstracts, manuscripts, and patents) that preceded the grant. The PI explained he was thinking about ideas and research that were connected to his grant, and when that thinking led to a product, he considered the product as an accomplishment related to the grant. After our letter, his listing of grant products in subsequent grants was more focused on products generated after the start date of the grant. Accordingly, this case is closed with no further action taken. NSF OIG Form 2 (11102)
