NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM 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. 1 2 3 NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
