Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP)

FDP is a cooperative initiative among federal agencies and institutional recipients of federal funds.  It was established to increase research productivity by streamlining the administrative process and minimizing the administrative burden on principal investigators while maintaining effective stewardship of federal funds.

FDP provides "expanded authorities" to the Institution.

Expanded Authorities include:

  • 90 day pre-spending authority
  • Institutionally approved no-cost extensions up to one additional year
  • Automatic carryover of unobligated funds from one budget period to the next

Note: these do not apply to non-federal sponsors.

Federal agencies do retain the right to override certain FDP general conditions with agency specific requirements. General FDP terms/conditions.
