The process of designing, verifying, and negotiating data usage agreements depends on the data, data source, expected uses, and adherence to Rutgers guidelines. For most research-related data exchanges, the university uses the model transmission and use agreements developed by the Federal Demonstration Project. Templates and other useful resources are available on this site. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] Under U.S. export control laws, a license from the Department of Commerce`s Bureau of Industry and Security may be required to export certain data. Anyone who intends to transfer controlled equipment from the Department of Commerce or the Department of State outside the United States should cooperate with the UH Export Control Officer, Sandy Ulmer, to obtain the required license. Limited records can only contain the following identifiers: Specify the uses and permitted information of the limited data set; A restricted record is a set of data that is exempt from certain direct identifiers specified in the HIPC confidentiality rule. A limited set of data may only be transmitted to an external party without a patient`s permission if the purpose of the disclosure is for research, public health or public health purposes and if the person or organisation receiving the information signs a Data Use Agreement (DUA) with the relevant entity or its counterparty. Whenever limited data is transmitted to or from a Researcher at Rutgers University, a Data Use Agreement and/or Counterpart Agreement between the relevant parties must be established. A Data Use Agreement (DUA) is a contractual document between a “data user” (usually the UMBC investigator who orders access to the information) and the “Data Set Source” (the organization or entity providing the data) that describes the provisions related to the transfer of confidential, protected or restricted use. Examples include records from government authorities or companies, information about student data, existing data on human research topics, and limited records.
Please read both Starting Point to Applying for dbGaP Data and dbGaP Individual Level Individual Data Access Request Procedures for the detailed instructions provided by NCBI to request access to data. If Stanford is the provider of a limited data set, Stanford requires the signing of a DUA to ensure that the corresponding provisions are in place to protect the limited data set. Here are the contacts for different types of research: What happens if the data I send to an external party contains protected health information (PHI) in accordance with the Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or educational records protected by the Human Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)? Verification of system security when the uh Information Technology (IT) agreement provides security standards for data protection A DUA should not be used if there is a funding agreement between the UAB and the other entity for the same project. . . .
