Should Multiple DMS Plans Be Submitted With Each Application for Funding, Including Large, Multicomponent Awards?


No. The Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy expects only one DMS Plan to be submitted with each application and does not expect separate Plans to be developed for individual projects under that application. In multicomponent applications, the DMS Plan must be in included in the Overall component. Applicants are encouraged to determine whether and how to coordinate responsibilities with respect to Plans with all Program Directors/Principal Investigators and all Key Personnel on the same application.
