Established by Executive Order 249 issued by Governor Roy Cooper in February 2022, the Governance Board provides consultation to the North Carolina Longitudinal Data System. NCLDS provides data contributors, practitioners and trusted research partners with secure access to cross-sector, longitudinal and linked record-level data for the purpose of helping them address the state's most pressing questions via data-informed decision-making, continuous improvement and performance management processes.
The board members are senior leaders from each entity that contributes data to NCLDS. The board also includes a non-voting member from the N.C. Department of Information Technology and the Governor's Office. Learn about the Governance Board members.
The board provides guidance and advice to the N.C. Government Data Analytics Center on:
- Establishing a policy and research agenda for the NCLDS
- Developing data governance, data security and data privacy policies for the NCLDS
- Approving new data partners for the NCLDS and ensuring coordination among agencies and the NCLDS
- Reviewing research requirements, protocols and guidelines regarding the approval of data requests
The board’s work is supported by its advisory committees: Data Quality and Data Governance. Each advisory committee is composed of representatives named by the board.
The NCLDS annual report shares its progress throughout 2022 and outlines ongoing work throughout 2023 and into the next year.
The NCLDS Governance Board meets at least two times per year. Meetings are open to the public. Click on a meeting to find materials and information on how to attend.
