2011 SBIR/STTR Solicitation Noteworthy Changes
Changes for both Phase I and Phase II SBIR/STTR Solicitations:
Phase I and Phase II Instructions
The instructions for both Phase I and Phase II have been separated into two separate documents for a consolidated view of what is required for each phase.
1.2 Program Authority and Executive Order
Public Law 112-17, extending authorization of the SBIR/STTR Programs until September 30, 2011.
1.3 Program Management
The management function of the NASA SBIR/STTR programs has been transitioned to the newly established Office of the Chief Technologist.
1.5.3 Principal Investigator (PI)
The definition of the PI has been revised to further clarify what NASA considers to be fulltime employment of the PI with the firm (or research institution for those in the STTR Program).
1.6 NASA SBIR”TAV” Subtopics
A new initiative for SBCs to utilize NASA-owned/NASA IP, which are patented technologies that NASA is offering under a non-exclusive, royalty-free research license for use under specific SBIR subtopics for award. Further description can be found in Sections 2.12, Section 3.2.4 (Part 3), 5.7.6, and Form B).
2.5 Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSBs)
A definition on the new legislation that was passed to encourage the participation of EDWOSBs.
1.5.2 Place of Performance
The description on the place of performance has been expanded.
3.2.2 Format Requirements
Proposals that do not follow the formatting requirement are subject to rejection during administrative screening. Any page(s) going over the required page limited will be deleted and omitted from the proposal review.
Forms A, B, C will all be done electronically, with each form counting as 1 page towards the page limit and accounting for pages 1-3 of the proposal regardless of the length. So all submitted technical proposals should start on page 4 with the table of contents.
3.2.4 Technical Content
Part 3: Technical Objectives
As stated above, here there is further description of the TAV initiative.
Part 8: Facilities/Equipment
The description and requirements for facilities and equipment has been further clarified and defined.
Part 9: Subcontracts and Consultants
The description and requirements for Subcontracts and Consultants has been further clarified and defined.
Part 11: Essentially Equivalent and Duplicate Proposals and Awards
The title, definition(s), and what is required in this section has been expanded upon. There is now a Part 11a and Part 11b. Part 11b will not be included in the page count and is meant to capture related research and development work that is being proposed, and to protect the SBC by showing full disclosure.
3.2.9 (for Phase I) and 3.2.8 (for Phase II) Briefing Chart
The briefing chart will now be submitted through an online form during the submissions process rather than being uploaded.
Note: Companies with Prior NASA SBIR/STTR Awards
NASA has instituted a comprehensive commercialization survey/data that firms must fill out. The survey will be done electronically during the submission process.
