Setting Up Data Expected

NDA's Data Expected is the list of all data structures in which data will be collected and submitted for a given collection as well as targeted enrollment numbers, initial submission, and initial sharing dates for each structure

Investigators will define their new Collection's "Data Expected" section within 6 months of grant award. Within the Data Expected tab of the Collection, create a data dictionary request by selecting existing or new data structures. The NDA curation team will extend existing NDA data dictionary data structures (add variables, extend value ranges, or add aliases) or create new NDA data dictionary data structures, to ensure that all new data is harmonized to the NDA data dictionary.

Once an item is added to the Data Expected List, NDA will be notified, and a Data Curator will be assigned to your NDA Collection. The Data Curator will serve as the NDA primary point of contact for the remainder of submission process, in charge of helping to create new data structures and harmonizing existing structures to meet the needs of the project. The Data Curator will reach out to project staff with questions, or once the draft structures are ready for review.

Input targeted enrollment numbers for each data structure. This is the total number of subjects for whom data will be collected and submitted in that structure. When data is collected from a subject across multiple visits, that subject is counted once in the ‘targeted enrollment’ field.

Initial Submission and Initial Share dates should be populated according to the applicable NDA Data Sharing Terms and Conditions (Data Sharing Regimen). Any modifications to these will go through the approval processes outlined above.
