Researchers who are interested in using the DASH data access service should follow the following steps:
Phase 1: Intake Form
Preparation: Researcher reviews DASH resources, such as:
|Researcher creates a DASH Portal account.|
|Researcher completes and submits an intake form.|
|DASH coordinates an intake call between the researcher and the data centers to review the project within 5 business days of receiving intake form.|
|DASH coordinates consultations between researchers and data centres to provide feedback and confirm feasibility of the project.|
|DASH consolidates data centre feasibility assessment and cost estimate (if applicable) and sends to Researcher within 2-4 weeks.|
|Researcher confirms they wish to proceed with request.|
Phase 2: Data Access Request (DAR)
DASH will communicate next steps to the research team to complete the data access request (DAR), including local DAR instructions and required documentation.
DASH coordinates a project kick-off meeting between the researcher and the data centers to clarify next steps and finalize data requirements.
Researcher completes local data access request activities.
DASH coordinates regular meetings with researchers to ensure project progression.
DASH and Data Centres support the researcher to obtain the following:
Phase 3: Data release and invoicing
|Researcher will access data as per each data centre's access policies and procedures (e.g. remote access to secure analytic environments).|
|Researcher will be invoiced for data and access services as per each data centre's cost recovery policies and procedures.|
