The Data Asset Framework survey represents a tried-and-tested methodology for helping institutions plan for preservation of their research data. We developed a revised version of the survey for Jisc in 2016, and the full question set and associated guidance are available free of charge on the Figshare repository. However, we know many institutions lack the capacity to develop, manage and analyse a DAF survey in-house.
How we can help:
• We offer independent advice on the design, management and analysis of your DAF survey
• The survey will be administered under your institution’s branding, using our enterprise-grade online survey software
• We take care of all aspects of the survey’s administration – you just have to disseminate the survey link
• We provide benchmarked analysis of your results to aid interpretation

What does it cost?
Delivery of a DAF survey can cost anywhere between £1,800 and £7,500+VAT, depending on institutional size and the level of customisation and analysis required. We would work with you to agree a tailored solution that is appropriate to your needs and budget.
