Each funder will have different requirements, but many follow the pattern as follows:
1. Types of data produced
Provide a brief description of the data being collected.
2. Data and metadata standards
Explain how you will describe your data in a way so that others can make use of it. Describe the file structure, the variables, etc.
3. Policies for access and sharing
Describe how and when your data will be made available once your project is completed.
4. Policies for re-use, redistribution
Identify your plans for allowing for reuse of your data. If you plan to restrict access, reuse, or redistribution, explain how you will communicate those restrictions.
5. Plans for archiving & preservation
This is where you layout your plans for the long-term storage and preservation of your data.
