 Case Number: I-16-0048-O                                                                         Page 1 of 1

                 We received an allegation that an NSF proposal1 contained substantial amounts of copied text
         from a single source. 2 In response to our inquiry about the copied text, the PI responded that the first
         author 3 of the paper helped write the proposal, but was barred by the institution from being a Co-PI.
         We sent the PI a QRP letter reminding him that all authors of a proposal must be acknowledged.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
