The Data Governance Framework document has been developed to support the university's data management policy. This document describes the data governance framework for University of Saskatchewan (U of S) institutional data. It identifies designated roles within the university that have specific decision-making accountabilities regarding institutional data, as well as defines the roles and accountabilities for data stewardship and data management.

In support of the framework, the  Data Classifications document describes the classes used to classify institutional data based on its sensitivity. The U of S data classifications help members of the university community to identify, understand, manage, and use university data appropriately.
