Premature Completion of Cases

Research Integrity

If the institution plans to terminate an inquiry or investigation for any reason without completing all the requirements of the PHS regulation, 42 CFR § 93 if PHS support is involved, the RIO must notify the ORI in advance for consultation and advice. Reasons may include admission of guilt by the respondent, settlement with the respondent, or any other reason other than 1) closure at the inquiry stage because an investigation is not warranted or 2) a finding of no misconduct at the investigation stage.
