Federal Demonstration Partnership

The Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) is a cooperative initiative among 10 federal agencies and 120 institutional recipients of federal funds. The FDP is a unique forum for individuals from universities and nonprofits to work collaboratively with federal agency officials to improve the national research enterprise. Its purpose is to reduce the administrative burdens associated with research grants and contracts. Most grants issued by FDP federal agencies are subject to the Research Terms and Conditions. Older agreements may contain the FDP IV Terms and Conditions.
