NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM 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 2 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. NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
