charge to committee
Charge to Committee
  • This Committee will develop policies and best practices so that units can implement business processes to ensure that the College is compliant with UM and Sponsor rules for purchase, management, use, and security of computing resources including hardware, software, and data.  The Committee will act as a sounding board for new issues that arise.  The Committee will identify and disseminate through the College’s Research and IT Website the policies and resources available to the IT and Research community.
things that our committee has had to address so far
Things that our Committee has had to address so far…
  • University Audit findings
  • NSF Data Management Plan (DMP) requirement
university audit findings
University Audit Findings

The audit focused on systems managed by Researchers or designees (not IT professionals). These systems are referred to as “unmanaged” machines. The objective of the audit was to evaluate risk related to:

  • Computer Security
  • Data Management
  • System Configuration
  • System Administration practices and controls
mandatory nsf data management plan
Mandatory NSF Data Management Plan

The Feds also are interested in how we are managing data and have asked us to tell them our plan. They are interested in:

  • Data, samples, other materials produced with their funds.
  • Standards to be used that are discipline specific.
  • Methods and policies for providing access and enabling sharing.
  • Provisions for re-use, re-distribution, and the production of derivatives.
  • Methods for archiving and preserving access to data and materials.

LSA Joint IT-Research Committee

Remember our Charge:

  • The Committee will develop policies and best practices so that units can implement business processes to ensure that the College is compliant with UM and Sponsor rules for purchase, management, use, and security of computing resources including hardware, software, and data. 
  • The Committee will act as a sounding board for new issues that arise. 
  • The Committee will identify and disseminate through the College’s Research and IT Website the policies and resources available to the IT and Research community.

Dealing with Data Management Plans

Both the UA findings and the NSF Mandatory requirement for a DMP are in keeping with the Charge to the LSA Joint IT-Research Committee. We have been handed a golden opportunity to collect information from our faculty. So you might be asking yourself:

  • What is the College doing to provide direction (in order to lower risk and provide faculty support)?
    • Collecting information on specific needs of faculty through the collection of data management plans.
    • Providing a website for accessing policies and resources
    • Developing training
  • Whose role is it to ensure minimum risk and sponsor compliance anyway?
    • Department Research Administrators will get the DMP to the IT staff
    • IT Professionals will need to work closely with their faculty to help ensure that the DMP is followed
  • How to be ready?
    • Read DMP that faculty are submitting to sponsor—if it is problematic solve the problem before the award comes in.
    • LSA Joint IT-Research Committee will continue to develop training and resources for departmental staff.
    • Work with your faculty to be partners in the process.
    • Learn all you can about what is available.
    • Department IT staff learn about standards that are discipline specific and ask for help if needed.
    • If you don’t have department IT staff work with CSG.
    • Don’t try to hold up proposals if the DMP isn’t perfect—we can’t stop proposals from meeting deadlines.

We are the compliance experts. We are the resource. We have an opportunity to provide leadership.
