NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A15030013 Page 1of1 NSF OIG received an allegation that a Proposal 1 contained material copied from an Article2 that neither the PI3 nor Co-PI4 authored. Our investigation determined that the majority of copied material was used with permission of the author. The remaining copied material was de minimis. We sent the PI and Co-PI questionable research practice letters reminding them of their respective responsibilities. Accordingly, this case is closed with no further action taken.
