Iowa DOT's DMP requirements stack with the Federal requirements and are largely the same except for a few key difference which are outlined below.
- The Iowa DOT DMP consists of two sections:
- The Data Management Documentation Table
- The Narrative (6 parts)
- Data archives used for data preservation and sharing must have persistent identifiers and conform to federal data repository requirements (See the US DOT - Data Sharing tab for more information).
Please use the template provided by the Iowa DOT to write your data management plan and address the questions asked in the guidance document.
