This report describes what is required in a data management plan for data that needs to be protected in some fashion. Here we provide an overview of what a data manager should consider, including the data ingestion and various extract-transform-load processes, metadata considerations and documentation, to what might need to be accounted for in the event of data loss. In addition, this report includes two appendices: forms that, when filled out, make the user compliant with DOE data management requirements as well as additional requirements for handling protected data at ORNL.
