Our Data Access Unit (DAU) provides a number of services for Researchers in support of their Data Access Requests, these include:

  • Providing information and coordination support to facilitate Researchers preparing Data Access Requests, such as guidance on data sets, years, fields, and development of the cohort definition
  • Confirming research team composition and ensuring that all have completed confidentiality undertakings
  • Undertaking preliminary review of Data Access Requests to ensure that applications include all required documentation and information (e.g., ethics review is current and relevant to the project requesting data, investigators are consistently identified, etc.)
  • Sending Data Access Requests to the relevant Data Steward(s) for full review and approval
  • Facilitating communications and additional requirements as necessary and appropriate and to enable timely responses
