A data management plan (DMP) is a written statement detailing how you will collect, organize, manage, store, secure, backup, preserve and share your data. Many grant funding agencies and corporate funders now require a data management plan to be incorporated into the grant application process in order to be considered. To learn more about DMP requirements for funding agencies, visit the Funding Guidelines tab.
For questions and considerations meant to guide you in creating a comprehensive data management plan, please see the library page, Developing Your Data Management Plan. For any additional questions or for personal feedback on your DMP draft, please contact the university Data Librarian.
Planning for Data Management
Part of the data management planning process, particularly for grants, involves being able to estimate and allocate the funds necessary to preserve and share research data. For questions or assistance with grants budgeting, please contact UNLV Office of Sponsored Programs and their Proposal Development Team.
The UK Data Service has prepared this costing tool and checklist to help formulate research data management costs in advance of research starting, for example for inclusion in a data management plan or in preparation for a funding application. This tool considers the additional costs - above standard planned research procedures and practices - that are needed to preserve research data and make them shareable beyond the primary research team.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) serves as the principal point of contact for individuals seeking and/or managing external funding for research, scholarship, and creative activities. Folks at the OSP can help you write your data management plan, so we highly recommend you contact them early in the process.
This tool helps researchers create, review, and share data management plans that meet institutional and funder requirements. Once created, you can then include your text in a federal grant application. researchers write a data management plan to include in a federal grant application. To create a UNLV-customized document, select University of Nevada, Las Vegas from the Institution drop down list and log in with your ACE Account.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has provided a guide to assist with creation of National Science Foundation (NSF) data management plans. Please note that each NSF directorate may establish more detailed requirements.
Looking for a sample NSF data management plan? Or one from Alfred P. Sloan Foundation? Go here to see a large list of data management templates for institutions, foundations and federal agencies. Sample data management plans (if available) can also be perused and modified for use in your own grant application.
