Data CookbookData governance is a priority for the Managerial Reporting Project, and the wider University. Accurately and consistently defining data is critical, as the MRP team builds out a University-wide data dictionary—the foundation for analytical data governance a UVA.

The project team is implementing Data Cookbook, a leading Higher Education data governance software solution used by more than 150 universities. The tool will help the MRP team capture data definitions, related approvals, report specifications, and build-out a broad data dictionary.

The School of Medicine already has a license, and we will be extending their implementation throughout the month of July. The goal is to use the software for all of the MRP governance work, while maintaining the work that SOM has already done on their own definitions.
