There are significant costs associated with retaining data however, the majority of these are borne at the corporate (University) level. Each College/Centre will be responsible for the following:

  • Purchase of archive boxes
    • The Academic Administrator will be responsible for ordering archive boxes (T1 and T4) for their areas of responsibility.
  • Transfer and delivery costs of research (data and information) assets that are being archived (this is an internal cost charged by the Estate’s Office).
