Federal Demonstration Partnership

The Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) is a cooperative initiative among federal agencies and institutional recipients of federal funds 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. NSF serves as the official host of participating agency documents relating to the FDP.

Effective July 1, 2008, FDP Federal agencies implemented use of Federal-wide Standard Terms and Conditions for Research Grants. These Federal-wide research terms were a direct result of years of cooperative work between Federal agencies and institutions participating in the FDP.

All research agencies now utilize this standard core set of administrative terms and conditions on awards subject to OMB Circular A-110 (2 CFR Part 215), to the extent practicable.
