Downloading University Data Standard

This standard establishes the responsibilities of data users regarding the downloading of University Data from University systems to department computers. It includes downloading both electronically via the University network (PittNet) or physically to any media.


Downloading of University data will be done only if:

  • It is the most cost effective method for providing information to the data user.
  • The confidentiality, integrity, and accuracy of the data can be ensured.

University systems are online and are typically updated daily. Therefore, each individual data set is the only true, authentic, and operational institutional data set. Information extracted from these data sets represents a snapshot of University data and may become outdated immediately upon downloading.

Data Requester Responsibilities
