Iowa DOT DMP requirements stack with the Federal requirements and are largely the same except for a few key differences which are outlined below.
- The Iowa DOT DMP consists of two sections:
- The Data Management Documentation Table
- The Narrative (6 parts)
- The DMP should not exceed 3 pages, including the table.
- 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).
Make sure to use the template provided by the Iowa DOT to write your data management plan and address the questions asked in the guidance document.
