SIMS Data Exchange Exercise Guidance V2 [PDF]

Agencies are required to submit SIMS data to S/GAC via the DATIM system on a quarterly basis. This guide serves as a resource for participating agencies to facilitate the process of submitting their SIMS 2.0 data to S/GAC for import into DATIM. Data intended for import into DATIM must satisfy strict requirements with respect to the format of the data as well the relationship of the data to the current metadata of the system. Data must be valid with respect to the organization units, data elements, and mechanisms.

The purpose of this exercise is for participating agencies (CDC, DoD, HRSA, PC, and USAID) to verify and validate the script developed by the DATIM team to correct records containing the same OU/IM/Period combination. This will enforce adherence to the org unit/mechanism/period uniqueness constraint required by DATIM.
Note: The script does not alter the assessment date, the integrity of which is important for subsequent analyses.

This document outlines steps involved in importing data into DATIM and steps towards eventually establishing a data exchange between DATIM and another system.

If your team is unable to meet the requirements for constructing files described in this resource, your team is probably not staffed with skills sufficient to recommend you as a candidate for importing data into DATIM.

This updated data import reference guide also includes a section (2.2.7) on data cleaning via data import.
