DG 1.05pr - Data Integrity/Quality :
The college has the responsibility to ensure that data entry standards are adhered to by all who enter information into the college's enterprise systems to ensure data integrity. In addition, the college must be able to reasonably assure that data extracted from the systems is valid and accurate.
College data includes not only specific student or employee information, but also institutional information such as expenses, revenue, and departmental or divisional activities. From the point of data entry into the college's enterprise systems, every effort must be taken to ensure that data is valid. Valid data means that data entry conforms with appropriate system tables, that data is transcribed accurately from physical records, and that no data is knowingly entered into any system or record that is known to be incorrect or invalid. Once data is entered into the system, it supports a variety of decision-making activities and purposes. Data that is extracted from computer systems must be validated to ensure that it accurately represents the information that it is intended to convey.
The Office of Planning, Research, and Assessment (OPRA) and the college's Data Stewards, under the Charter of the Data Governance Committee will:
