NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: 111020004 Page 1 of 1 This investigation initiated from a review 1 that detected a PI2 received funding from NSF 3 and another agenc/ for conducting similar research. We found the PI: (1) submitted similar research proposals to NSF and the agency and (2) reported similar findings in project reports to NSF and agency without informing the program officers. The PI's actions did not warrant criminal prosecution or civil action. As a result of the OIG findings, the university implemented a corrective action plan under which the PI will receive remedial ethic training, fiscal administration training, submit certifications for the next year, and other actions designed to ensure the PI does not submit overlapping proposals in the future. Accordingly, this investigation is closed. 2 NSF OIG Form 2 (11 /02)
