                                          CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM

Case Number: 114080027                                                                  Page 1 of 1

                We received a complaint alleging (1) bias in our resolution of a previous matter 1 and
         (2) poor merit review quality by an NSF program. We infom1ed the complainant that her
         concerns about the quality of the merit review of her proposals fall within the purview of NSF
         management, not our office. We found no evidence of bias in the handling of the previous
         matter. However, we determined that the closeout for the previous matter should be revised,
         which we did and so notified the complainant. Accordingly, this case is closed.
