Data Use Agreement Tips
RSC Newsletter Edition No.04 6/8/19, contributed by Sherrie Settle, Director of Sponsored Programs
Even when no funds are changing hands, Data Use Agreements can have costly implications for the University and for the individuals who have access to the shared data (See the Compliance Corner [in the newsletter] for more information).
To protect your researchers and ensure that Data Use Agreements are both consistent with University policies and appropriate to the work for which the data are needed, please remember to:
- Route Data Use Agreements in PINS
- Reference the RADAR or PINS records for associated sponsored projects
- If the data are not related to a sponsored project, include a Scope of Work in the PINS record
- Document how any data security requirements (e.g. limited access) will be met
- Be mindful of project creep - using shared data for a new project might require prior approval or modification of the Data Use Agreement
Individual researchers and research staff should not sign Data Use Agreements on behalf of the University or enter into Data Use Agreements in their own names for University work. They may be required to acknowledge the terms of a Data Use Agreement as data users or custodians.
