 Case Number: I-16-0006-O                                                                    Page 1 of 1

                 We received an allegation that inappropriately attributed text had been copied into an NSF
         proposal.1 We reviewed the proposal and found a few small sections of verbatim copied text that
         were not demarcated, but were cited appropriately in every instance. We determined that the matter
         did not warrant a full investigation and sent both the PI and co-PI warning letters, urging them to
         ensure appropriate practices when copying verbatim text.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
