NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan Guidance

Oversight

Oversight

In Element 6: Oversight of Data Management and Sharing, you need to describe how compliance with the plan will be monitored and managed, the frequency of oversight, and by whom at your institution (e.g., titles, roles). Below is text you can use in your plan:

Suggested Response (UVA Office of Sponsored Programs/VPR):

[Insert Name/Role1] will be responsible for monitoring compliance with the data management (e.g., data capture, documentation, quality review, storage and backup) aspects of the approved DMS plan at least [Insert Frequency2] and, when appropriate, proposing revisions. Research administration/compliance staff will conduct compliance reviews following procedures established by the Office of the Vice President for Research prior to submission of an RPPR.

1 This should be the PI or a member of the study team designated by the PI (e.g., data scientist or other “investigator”, as defined in University policy RES-011). Note that investigators may request funds toward data management and sharing in the budget and budget justification sections of their applications.

2 The specified frequency should be determined based on the study plan/timeline but should be at least annually, i.e., in conjunction with preparation of the RPPR.

 

Note 1: In order to facilitate compliance reviews, your RPPR should include a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) or other URL for each publicly available (digital) research product. For additional information on NIH reporting requirements, see RPPR Instruction Guide.

Note 2: Prior approval of the NIH ICO is required for any revision to an approved DMS plan. Requests to modify an approved DMS plan must be routed to the Authorized Submitting Office via ResearchUVA Powered By Huron for submission to the sponsor.
