    • JISC KAPTURBusiness, Financial and Sustainability Plan TemplatePurposeThe deliverable of the Business, Financial and Sustainability Plans form part of Work Package 5:Application and Testing along with the RDM policies and the case studies. The Business, Financialand Sustainability Plans will support the work of the Research Data Management (RDM) policies byoutlining how RDM best practice will be taken forward at each of the four institutions after the end ofthe JISC KAPTUR project (2011-13).AudienceThe Plan is an internal document for each institution. It is expected that the audience will include theexisting stakeholders established through the RDM working groups and the members of thecommittees that approved the RDM policies. This will vary at each institution.OwnershipThis template constitutes guidance only; please prioritise your own institutional processes andprocedures. The Plan may be transferred to an institutional template or worked up at a later stage intoa full Business Case following internal procedures.Method of DeliveryThe Plans are not expected to be made publicly available due to the confidential nature of much ofthe content; however information from the Options Appraisal and Evaluation sections will need to besupplied to the Project Manager to incorporate into the KAPTUR final project report.

The partner institutions will be required to report theircurrent choice of options for continuing RDM best practice post KAPTUR. It is recognised, as statedin the RDM policies, that implementation may take several years and so the options may include arange of both short term measures - such as up-skilling existing staff and use of the KAPTUR toolkits- to longer term measures - such as recruiting enough staff to support all prospective PrincipalInvestigators with completing their Data Management Plans.Option Owner Dependencies Timescalee.g. Up-skill existing e.g. Head of relevant e.g. Support of relevant e.g. state if ongoing orstaff to support RDM department e.g. department including if expected in next 6best practice Research Office interest from staff to be months/next year/next up-skilled 5 years/next 10 yearse.g. Recruitment ofnew staff to supportRDM best practiceRisk ManagementThe table below can be used to list risks which may impact upon the delivery of RDM best practicee.g. commercial, economic, environmental, legal, organisational, political, strategic or technical.Please also explain which group/s and/or individuals will have responsibility for monitoring the risk/s(Owner). 3
