The value of data as an institutional resource is increased through its widespread and appropriate use; its value is diminished through improper sourcing, misuse, misinterpretation, unnecessary restrictions to its access, or failure to maintain quality. Create policies to keep data's value, such as:

  • Only allow entry of data from reliable sources.
  • Employees entering and accessing data must observe requirements for capturing and maintaining provenance metadata.
  • Provenance metadata will be used to track the lifecycle of data from creation through to disposal.
