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.
