In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

The gist of the desired USGS Data Management Plan is to compile common elements (a set of agreed-upon standards, if you will) of a USGS data management plan into a document that can be used by all the Science Strategy Planning Teams (SSPT).  A second section of the USGS DM Plan is envisioned to be a template for SSPT-specific elements.  Such a Plan will provide a consistent approach for defining and documenting the data management/integration needs of each mission area in the USGS.
