Data management includes all the policies and practices that ensure UDW+ provides the university community with accurate and consistent information while protecting data security and confidentiality. Establishing systematic data management has been one of the principal objectives of the UDW+ program.
The key goals of establishing NYU's Data Management Infrastructure include the following:
|Financial Reporting & Analytics||The first project of the UDW+ Program focused on improving financial reporting and analytics by providing more intuitive and flexible access to financial data.|
|Departmental Metrics||The Departmental Metrics Dashboard compiles for selected departments the indicators identified by the Provost's Council on Science and Technology as "Principal Markers of Success: Priority Academic Metrics for Assessing Science and Engineering at New York University." These include information on the department's faculty and research staff, faculty achievements, proposal submissions, grants and students, as well as external comparative metrics.|
Data Trustees, Data Stewards and Data Custodians have been or will be actively engaged in these subject areas and will continue to work with the Decision Support Group and UDW+ team in certifying and validating data.
|Financial Reporting & Analytics||Access to Financial Reporting Dashboards and Standard Reports are governed by chartfield access. Training is mandatory. For more information, contact the Decision Support Group. |
|Departmental Metrics||Access to Departmental Metrics is governed by the reporting department and follows a specialized access process. For additional information, contact the Decision Support Group. |
|Student||Access policy is under development. Currently, data can be viewed for all schools.|
|Human Resources ||Access policy is under development.|
