The Office of Data Administration manages data as a University resource so
members of the Penn community have the information they need, when they need
it, and in the form in which they need it to do their jobs. The objectives
of Data Administration are to improve the quality, security, ease of access,
and reduce the redundancy of the data. Specific functions of the Office of
Data Administration focus on data architecture as a framework for decision
making, the creation of a common language of standards, the arbitration and
negotiation of agreements, and a commitment to education and advocacy.
Data Warehouse : The Warehouse allows faculty, staff, experienced
system developers, and institutional researchers to perform direct queries
on administrative University data.
