Data Use Agreements

A Data Use Agreement (DUA) is a legally binding agreement intended to at least DEFINE the Data, the TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE USE of the Data and the RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES related to the use of the Data.

When one is preparing to access a dataset from an outside source, the first thing that needs to be completed is the Data Use Checklist.The purpose of this checklist is to assure that the pending DUA is routed to the appropriate area for review.
