Discovery Commons suspending online survey creation service

Aug 29, 2017

Discovery Commons’ Fluid Surveys license expires September 2017 and we will suspend our online survey creation service until a replacement survey solution has been procured and implemented by the University. Clients who wish to create their own surveys, without the involvement of Discovery Commons must purchase their own account with a survey provider. We do not recommend that any form of high stakes assessment or the collection of protected information be conducted through surveys. According to the Faculty’s Information Risk Management Program, protected information is defined as:

· Personal Information
· Personal Health Information
· Payment Card Information
· IT System Administrator access to information and information solutions / infrastructure (such as root or administrator passwords)
· Other data with externally-regulated protection requirements (such as legal data)
