Combined Synopsis/Solicitation
Added: Dec 20, 2011 11:25 am
The National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is soliciting from small businesses scientific and engineering related R&D proposals for contracts that respond to specific technical needs described in this annual Solicitation. Only proposals responding to those specific technical needs expressed in the NIST Solicitation will be reviewed and evaluated for possible funding. SBIR Programs do not fund projects that have already established a proof-of-concept. The first phase of any SBIR award is a feasibility study, and that phase may not be skipped.
The NIST SBIR Program awards contracts as the funding agreement type for its awards. As such, research conducted by small businesses awarded NIST SBIR funds perform R&D in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) rules and under the supervision of a NIST technical representative that monitors the progress of the R&D.
The NIST SBIR Program does not award grants. More information can be found on our external website.
