 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.
