 Case Number: I-16-0037-O                                                              Page 1 of 1

                A PI1 requested reconsideration of his proposal because a panel member told him his
         proposal was rated better than those funded. When contacted, the PI recalled discussing only
         publically available information and did not recall who the panel member was.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
