 Case Number: I-17-0021-O                                                                    Page 1 of 1

         We received an allegation of plagiarism in a proposal 1 and determined there were approximately
         three lines of common text between the proposal and the source document. The copied text described
         the mathematical relationship between a series of variables and was therefore somewhat technically
         constrained. Given the small amount of copied text and the technical nature of the text, we will not
         pursue the matter further.

         This case is closed with no further action taken.
