 Case Number: I-16-0066-O                                                                    Page 1 of 1

                 A program officer 1 forwarded us an email from a researcher 2 who was concerned that he had
         been left out of a proposal 3 on which he was collaborating. We determined lack of communication
         among the collaborators led to a misunderstanding about the nature and scope of the collaboration.
         The researcher’s other concern is a scientific dispute and better addressed through the scientific
         process, not OIG.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
