Data Management Plan (DMP) Creation Support

Partnership between the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance (SPaRC) and Information and Library Services (ILS) ensures questions about conceptualizing and drafting your research data management plan (DMP) are productively addressed.  If you have questions about available data management resources or compliance with requirements for federal granting agencies, this is your resource.
