 Case Number: I-16-0032-O                                                                     Page 1 of 1

                 We received an allegation concerning a violation of the confidentiality of the merit review
         process. Specifically, a PI1 told a Program Officer 2 that a colleague had disclosed the members of a
         merit review panel to him. When contacted, the PI did not reveal the colleague’s name. Without the
         name of the colleague, this case cannot be pursued.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
