Administrative data sets are often a very large source of information. A receiving agency will need to take into consideration the impact of a large amount of data being acquired and how the volume of the electronic data will be able to be handled by the existing computer systems. It is important to make sure that information is not lost in the transfer from one system to another.

It is also worth noting that the larger the data set, the lesser the ability of the receiving agency to ensure the validity of all of the records. Measures will need to be put in place which allow the agency to have an acceptable level of comfort in the validity of the administrative records without the receiving agency having to individually assess each record.
