Reuse Letter of Support from Original Requestor

Researchers who are requesting to reuse data will need to provide a letter of support from the original requestor of the data, if the current requestor is not the same as the original requestor. Specifically, the letter of support must be signed by the individual listed as the User on the DUA from which the data will be reused.

  • At the onset of your request, please only provide an unsigned, draft document in Word format.
  • The document is not formatted to letterhead or signed until the end of the ResDAC review process.
  • CMS does not currently accept electronic signatures.
