NewSTEPs Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) for Data Repository

The Data Repository is now live and ready to accept data. However, at this time NewSTEPs kindly requests that you hold on entering case and quality indicator data until your program has a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with APHL. Please note, however, that state profile data can be entered prior to the ratification of the MOU. This includes data collected related to disorders screened, state policies and procedures, and contact information. Additional information on the MOU process can be found by viewing the webinar linked herein.

Additionally, the webinar explains how NewSTEPs has sought guidance on the data repository and all data sharing activities from both the Colorado Institutional Review Board and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP), and that both entities have deemed this project to be Non-Human Subject Research.
