A) Necessary to any investigation of
B) It is necessary in making any investigation into
C) When making any investigation, it is a necessity of
D) A necessity of any investigation into
E) A necessary part of investigating into

I am not very sure about my logic so please confirm.

A. Any follows with plural form of the verb. so this follows sub verb agreement. Don’t feel there is any problem with the sentence.

B. Doesn’t have subject for verb are strictly followed.

C. Same error as in B

D & E. into the causes is changing the meaning. And also in option E subject verb error is there.

Any is not always followed a plural verb. For example:

Any student is eligible to take the GMAT.

In this case, it doesn't matter, as the subject of the (plural) verb are is actually the (plural) noun methodologies and scrupulously recorded data. If we put the original sentence in the normal order (subject first), we get:

Strictly followed scientific methodologies and scrupulously recorded data are necessary to any investigation of the causes of a newly-discovered disease.
