Data Request - Example

An example may help clarify the process:

The AIS system needs a data feed of account numbers from the Financial Accounting System. In this case, the Data User (the Registrar) would prepare a DUR, requesting the required data. The completed DUR would be sent by the Data User to the Steward of financial data (the AVP for Finance). If the financial Data Steward has questions about the request, s/he would contact the Data User, and they would discuss and resolve any questions. Once the concerns of the AVP for Finance have been addressed, s/he will send an email to the Registrar giving consent to the request. That request, along with the approval email, would be forwarded to the list for entry into the repository.
