“ Starting with the October 1, 2003 receipt date, investigators submitting an NIH application seeking $500,000 or more in direct costs in any single year are expected to include a plan for data sharing or state why data sharing is not possible. “

NSF, All proposals must (as of 1/1/2011) include a data management plan.
Specific requirements vague, for the most part: “will be determined by the community of interest through the process of peer review and program management.”
“ will review data management and sharing plans, and any costs involved in delivering them, as an integral part of the funding decision ”
