6.1.1 R&T misconduct means fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing R&T or in reporting R&T results. R&T misconduct does not include honest error or differences of opinion. For R&T that is sponsored or conducted by NASA, the organization accomplishing activity is responsible for compliance with NASA's R&T misconduct policy.

6.1.3 NASA individuals, who receive allegations of R&T misconduct that may have occurred within or outside NASA, notifies the NASA Inspector General. The NASA Inspector General is responsible for R&T misconduct inquiries and investigations and for the preparation and submission of its findings and recommendations in a report to NASA. The cognizant MDAA or MSOD is responsible for implementing any administrative actions that may result from adjudication of research misconduct.
