Throughout any data governance process, vast amounts of information and knowledge are generated as we progress from issue to resolution. Our process has resulted in nearly one thousand pages of documentation and resources including issue resolutions, definitions, procedures, and data standards. To ensure the maximum value for our end users, we consider all functional areas and every campus in the University of Maine System (UMS). Follow the links below to learn more about using UMS institutional data. If you do not have the access you require, please contact UMS Data Governance.
