Federal Funding Agency Guidelines on Data Sharing

The White House Office of Science & Technology Policy mandated in February, 2013 that all federal agencies with an Research and Development budget greater than $100 million must devise a plan for providing access to research publications and data created by grant funding.  Director John Holden’s memorandum provides the details for the policy.

Federal agencies have varying requirements for data management plans, and almost all of them have a data sharing policy.  Many agencies have subdivisions that have additional requirements.The following list provides links to each agency home page, and to their data management plan requirements and data sharing policies as indicated.
