Data Sharing Request

TRecs, in partnership with other University Operations departments, is providing a service to better manage data assets as they are shared with other campus departments. If needed, TRecs will develop a data sharing plan to outline the nature of the data and how it will be used to help ensure both parties are successfully managing the data. If you are interested in submitting a data sharing request for or from a University Operations department, please review the examples below and select ‘I Understand’ to continue to the request form [UT EID required].

Example of the Rights and Responsibilities of Sharing Party

  • Retain all ownership rights to the data
  • Determine the security requirements for the data
  • Know how the data will be used by the receiving party
  • Determine who can see and use the data set
