The DCC is a consortium supported by JISC and based at the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Bath. 'DMPonline' is a tool developed by the DCC as a shared resource for the research community. It is hosted at the University of Edinburgh. QUT has used the DMPonline as the basis for its Data Management Planning tool.
