FDP Pushback Template

Dear Colleague,

Michigan State University and [OTHER Institution Name] are both participants in the Expanded Clearinghouse, a Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) initiative that reduces the administrative burden associated with the exchange of subrecipient monitoring forms. As a condition of our participation, we agreed to utilize the Expanded Clearinghouse to obtain publicly available information rather than exchange forms.

As you may know, the Expanded Clearinghouse makes our data publicly available, including general institutional information, audit reports, rate agreements, contacts, registrations, certifications, and assurances. Furthermore, the data included in each profile has been certified by the appropriate Institutional Official, and a profile printout has proven sufficient documentation of information receipt. Therefore, please obtain at

For more information on this matter, please contact your institutional contact [INSTITUTIONS Primary Contact listed on the FDP Clearinghouse webpage], also copied on this email. Additionally, you may contact Katherine Cook,, with any questions related to MSU’s profile, and [Dept/College Administrator’s Name] to request any project-specific information not available in the Expanded Clearinghouse.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and cooperation.
