Data Management Resources at UTSA

Grant Support

The UTSA Office of Sponsored Project Administration (OSPA) serves as the coordinating office for externally funded research and sponsored projects and can answer questions about the process of submitting grant proposals.

Data Storage

The UT System Research Cyberinfrastructure (UTRC) offers high performance computing to any University of Texas System Institution through the Texas Advanced Computing Center, a large storage data repository. 

The UT Data Repository (UTDR), a component of the UTRC, enables long-term data storage, hosting of large scientific data collections for collaborations and communities, and analysis capabilities that span multiple collections. The UTDR helps facilitate data management plans, which are now a required component of all NSF and NIH proposals. The storage architecture has been designed to ensure that it meets diverse research requirements and can be scaled for future needs.

Data Management Planning

DMP Tool

We are proud to offer the DMPTool as a resource for the UTSA research community. Developed by the University of California Curation Center and a group of major research institutions, the DMPTool is designed to help researchers:

  • Create ready-to-use data management plans for specific funding agencies
  • Get step-by-step instructions and guidance for data management plans
  • Learn about resources and services available at their home institution to fulfill the data management requirements of their grants

To access the DMPTool, visit, click on Get Started, and choose the "University of Texas at San Antonio" from the pull-down menu. From there you can log in with your abbc123 and passphrase.
