POLICY AND PROCEDURES TO ASSIST FACULTY (AND DOCTORAL STUDENTS) WITH THE REQUESTING OF A DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN
  1. The Project PI researcher (or their assistant) will receive email correspondence from the designated point of contact within ONRS, Joanna Kentolall, to complete a Sensitive Data Questionnaire through REDCap. The link to the survey is also available below:

    • In the RedCap survey, the project PI researcher (or their assistant) will upload their most current IRB protocol.
    • In IRBNet, the project PI should (and is required by IRB) grant access to their project to the nIT Director, Jony Singh
  2. After the Sensitive Data Questionnaire has been submitted and received by nIT, a meeting will be scheduled between the researcher and the nIT department to discuss the specifics of the research project relative to data management.
  3. After the meeting, the nIT department will draft an individualized DMP, which will be specific to the study protocol.
    • The turn-around time for the DMP ranges from 1-10 business days from the date of the first meeting.
    • Additional meetings may be necessary in order to clarify any information that was not covered in the first meeting.
    • As an alternative to additional meetings, clarification can be conducted through email correspondence between the nIT department and the PI researcher.
  4. Once the DMP has been approved and signed by the nIT director, it will be emailed to the Project PI researcher for them to upload to their IRBNet project.
    • The researcher can review the final version and communicate suggestions, regarding changes for the DMP to the nIT director.

Note: Delays on the part of the researcher, regarding submitting the questionnaire or scheduling the first meeting, will result in a delay of the researcher receiving a DMP that is signed/approved and ready to be uploaded to irbnet. The timeline to receiving a DMP that is signed/approved and ready to be uploaded to irbnet is 1-10 business days (i.e. excluding weekends, holidays, etc.)
