  • UAB Joins Federal Demonstration Partnership’s (FDP) Clearinghouse Pilot Program

    In an effort to streamline the process for both incoming and outgoing federal subawards, UAB has joined the Federal Demonstration Partnership’s (FDP) Expanded Clearinghouse. This is a pilot program for certain FDP institutions and provides audit, demographic and fiscal information needed by pass-through entities (PTEs) when they are issuing federal subawards. Now, when UAB issues a federal subaward to another entity in the pilot program, collection of the Subrecipient Assurance form is no longer required. Instead, the necessary information will be obtained from the entity’s profile in the Expanded Clearinghouse; a searchable list of the participating entities along with their profiles can be found FDP Expanded Clearinghouse website.

    Attached is a PDF of the participating institutions. Project-specific information (such as Human Subjects use, Animal Subjects use, etc.) will still need to be collected from the entities including a new, project specific form for that will be released shortly.

    For incoming subawards, we will no longer need to complete forms containing this information from other pilot institutions. The FDP web site has sample language to send to other pilot participants when we are asked to complete such forms.

    Additional information can be found on the FDP website and will be available shortly the Office of Sponsored Programs website. If you have questions, please contact askosp@uab.edu.
