Most projects at UNC are funded through one of the following agencies. Each agency has their own data management and sharing policy and requirements. Furthermore, additional requirements for data management and sharing may appear in the notice of funding opportunity/program solicitation. We recommend carefully reviewing the policy language and other relevant documents that outline requirements before you begin planning for data management activities and writing your DMSP.
