New to the forum so thanks for having me. Now for my question...

Anyone out there that works for a government entity (or private company could chime in also) that can tell me who possesses admin and overall ownership of your data? We are going through a transition and have recently found that there is a stipulation stating Engineering department should have full control and Information Technology (IT) department is only a support function which of course is causing quite the argument. Can anyone tell me if there is a formal structure for the data control or even just how your organization handles it will help.

Thank you

I don't know if this will help, but where I work, the Engineering dept owns and maintains the data. IT supports them. I work for Engineering dept, but perform database administration duties with Oracle. The servers and computers are maintained by IT, though.
