At the CDMR, we help researchers with data identification and assist them with shaping data requests and, where necessary, sponsor buy-in. Oversight of data management represents a significant and vital investment of time and effort by the Principal Investigator (PI) of a research project. For oversight to be thorough and correct, our PIs ensure that every member of the research project team is involved in the planning, implementation, and maintenance of data management policies and procedures.
The CDMR is establishing research data agreements with the first between NPS and the Deputy Commandant for the Marine Corps (Manpower and Reserve Affairs). Potential access to the Army Analytics Group Research Facilitation Laboratory’s (RFL) Protected Data Environment (PDE) is being explored and a range of NPS faculty have already undertaken research for the U.S. Army using data and research analytical and statistical tools in the PDE.
