Data Management and Sharing Plans

In August 2022, the federal Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued the Nelson memo, which directs all federal agencies to implement plans requiring public access to federally funded research by December 31, 2025. As stated in the memo, “when federally funded research is available to the public, it can improve lives, provide policymakers with important evidence with which to make critical decisions, accelerate the rates of discovery and translation, and drive more equitable outcomes across every sector of society.” Below is an inventory on specific data management plans published by each agency to date. These instructions will be incorporated into grant guidelines. Applications that are not compliant risk return without review.
