Case Number: A13110092                                                                       Page 1 of 1

                 NSF OIG received an allegation that two proposals submitted under the same solicitation,
         by different institutions and Pis, contained similar text and intellectual property. 1 Our review
         found that the Pis of the two proposals had previously co-authored an earlier awarded version of
         this proposal, while both were employed at the same institution. 3 Both Pis therefore had the
         right to use the jointly-developed text and ideas. Accordingly, this case is closed with no further
         action taken.
