Data Use Agreements

The review and negotiation of a Data Use Agreement (DUA) is centrally managed by Research Management. Visit the Research Navigator for up to date information regarding initiating this type of agreement with collaborators. Please direct questions and concerns to a Research Management mailbox specific to the hospital you are working with:  bwhsubs@partners.orgmghsubs@partners.org or mclsubcontracts@partners.org​​​.

A variation of the standard DUA, the Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) Data Use Certification is also reviewed by Research Management.  However, the researcher is required to work with RISC to address security requirements surrounding the data including systems, lab and building security, data flow and training.  To expedite these requests, make sure your online Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) and NIH Security Awareness trainings are up to date and that you have printed certificates (pdf) of completion.

RISC also assists researchers with responding to the required security questions for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and state Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) dataset requests.
