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