The Institutional Underpinnings program is led by the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). In this program, 25 Australian universities collaborated over 18 months during 2021 and 2022 to develop a national framework for institutional research data management (RDM). The framework is intended to inform institutions’ design of policy, procedures, infrastructure and services, and improve coordination of RDM within and between institutions.The participating universities identified 19 elements essential for RDM in a university. Of these, they identified 9 elements as opportunities for immediate collaborative action. Expert working groups developed recommendations and calls to action for these 9 elements. The universities tested the effectiveness of this guidance in local projects. The findings from these projects were combined with feedback from national infrastructure providers and other Australian research institutions to produce the final version of the framework presented here.
