A Data Use Agreement (DUA) is a contract that establishes terms and conditions governing the transfer of research-related data between the University and another institution or company. A DUA between a providing entity and a receiving entity should be fully-executed before any data elements are sent or received.
|DUA In (Receiving Data):||DUA Out (Providing Data):|
|DUA-In must be completed when a University PI has requested data from another entity. Typically, the providing entity will provide its own DUA template for University’s review and execution.||A DUA-Out must be completed when a University PI desires to send data to a researcher at another entity. In these instances, a University DUA template will be sent to the receiving entity for review and execution. The University may choose to utilize its DUA template.|
|All DUAs should be forwarded to the firstname.lastname@example.org for review.|
If a UTHealth PI has requested data to be transferred to him/her from another entity or if another entity has requested data to be transferred from the UTHealth PI, the PI/department will forward a completed Transfer form and any necessary approval letters to SPA. SPA will negotiate the legal terms and conditions of the DUA with the entity.
