Project Title: Models for a Data Concierge Service for a National Secure Data Service
Project Performers: NORC at the University of Chicago, Michael Berning, Consultant
Objective: The objective of this project is to explore models for a data concierge service for a potential, future National Secure Data Service (NSDS). In the Year 2 report prepared by the Advisory Committee on Data for Evidence-Building (ACDEB), the need for a data concierge service was identified. A data concierge service would offer technical assistance to individuals seeking access to federal data. This concierge service would serve as a coordinator between data providers and data users, providing assistance to data users in answering general questions; identifying confidential data assets that meet their evidence building needs; directing them to subject matter experts and more focused guidance when needed; and support in developing evidence-building proposals to apply for access to confidential data. This project will explore the needs of data users who are investigating access to confidential data; the tools that would facilitate a data concierge service in assisting users; and the development of potential models for a data concierge service.
