In 1986, five federal agencies initiated a demonstration project (FDP I) to reduce unnecessary administrative burdens on sponsored research, and provide a forum for developing models for administrative reform in a variety of sponsored research areas. By September 1988 FDP II had 21 educational institutions and 10 Federal agencies enrolled in the project. Significant accomplishments of FDP II include more uniform procedures for the administration of grants, simplification of the continuation grant application, and elimination of equipment screening requirements. Continuing this trend, the Federal Demonstration Partnership III will serve as a venue to articulate recommendations for innovations in Federal research policy and practice particularly as they relate to federally funded research at universities and other non-profits.
Dartmouth College has been a member of FDP Phase II since 1988.
