NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: Al5030015 Page 1of1 NSF OIG received an allegation that a PI 1 plagiarized material in an NSF Proposal2 from a previously funded NSF proposal. 3 Our inquiry determined that the PI acknowledged using the earlier proposal to guide his own Proposal's presentation and formatting. Given that the copied material was de minimis, we sent the PI a questionable research practice letter reminding him of his respective responsibilities. Accordingly, this case is closed with no further action taken. NSF OIG Form 2 (11102)
