The U.S. Department of Education anticipates the release of the 2013 Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) Fast Track solicitation on or about December 17, 2012. This solicitation is for offerors who are submitting a SBIR Fast-Track proposal (Phase I and Phase II combined into one proposal) to develop an education technology product for products used by students or teachers (or other instructional personnel) or products for use by infants, toddlers, or students with or at risk for disabilities, or teachers (or other instructional personnel, related services providers, or family members) in early interventions or special education. The purpose of the SBIR program is to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector, strengthen the role of small business in meeting ED research and development needs, increase the commercial potential of ED-supported research results, and improve the return on investment from Federally-funded research for economic and social benefits to the Nation.



A Fast-Track proposal is a single proposal that contains both Phase I and Phase II activities. The Phase I proposal should concentrate on research or research and development (R/R&D) that will significantly contribute to proving the feasibility of the technological approach, a prerequisite for further Department support in Phase II. Phase I awards are for periods up to 6-months in amounts up to $150,000. Phase II proposals expand on and develop Phase I project results. It requires a more comprehensive plan, outlining the effort in detail including the commercial potential. Phase II awards are for periods up to 2-years in amounts up to $900,000.
