The FDP is a great forum for faculty representatives to share information about the administrative burdens they face; while partnering with administrators and federal representatives on the solutions necessary to move discovery forward!

– Robert Nobles, DrPH, MPH, Emory University; Vice Chair, FDP Faculty Committee


FDP Phases and Membership

FDP is organized by phases for a period of six years. Prior to the end of each phase the FDP opens up its membership. Membership of the FDP, once granted, is for the entire length of each FDP phase.

FDP is currently in Phase VII, which officially began on January 1, 2021 and runs through December 31, 2027. Information regarding membership applications and renewals for Phase VIII will be released in 2027.

Member Population

Phase VII membership consists of 10 federal agencies and 217 institutional recipients of federal funds. FDP has a wide variety of member institutions, providing federal agencies easy access for testing systems, analyzing the impact of policy changes, or conducting surveys to the broad research community.

Our member institutions include large and small, public and private, research- intensive universities, predominantly undergraduate institutions, research hospitals and medical centers, emerging research institutions, and independent research institutes and labs.

Membership is diversified and includes Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and a variety of stakeholders and participants, including faculty, research administration professionals and technical partners.
