don sbir sttr main goals
Use small business to develop innovative R&D that addresses a Navy or Marine Corps need – including energy efficiency improvements and cyber security improvements, as the DON mission evolves.

Commercialize (Phase III) that technology into a DON platform or weapons/communication system, or for facilities use in expeditionary bases in new “pivot” locales in Africa and Asia.

Each SYSCOM has own Phase II guidance (typical amounts shown)

Production/Further R&D


Acquisition Driven Process, withStrong Technology Pull

  • SBIR/STTR projects derive from SYSCOM-generated Topics announced in quarterly solicitations.
  • Over 80% of Navy Topics are selected by PEO/PM/FNC offices and address their specific needs, not just “sponsored by”.
  • PEOs get back 90% of their SBIR/STTR “tax” , as Topics. They make Phase I and II selections and have Phase III funding.
  • Many contracts monitored by lab employees with Acquisition Office POC involved.

NOTE: A ‘Subsequent Phase II’ is a Requirements Driven process; i.e., based upon Acquisition program needs.

what s new with sbir sttr
What’s New With SBIR/STTR?
  • SBIR/STTR Reauthorization statute focuses on increased commercialization:
    • DoD services and components must set transition and insertion goals
    • All Federal agencies may offer increased transition assistance to awardees
    • Awardees must transition SBIR/STTR projects
      • Phase II Transition Rate Benchmark
        • Applies to firms receiving >20 Phase Is over 5 years: 25% benchmark for winning Phase Iis.
      • Commercialization Rate Benchmark
        • Applies to firms receiving >15 Phase IIs over 5 years: 25% benchmark for winning Phase IIIs.
        • Period of calculation excludes most recently completed fiscal year.
      • Penalty
        • Awardees failing either benchmark are ineligible for a new Phase I or II award for one year from the time of determination (June 1). SBA notifies Agencies and ineligible firms, Agencies report denied applications.
what s new with sbir sttr1
What’s New With SBIR/STTR?
  • Statute also focuses on opening access to SBIR/STTR
    • Federal agencies are required to develop and execute outreach plans to underserved populations, with emphasis on women and minority entrepreneurs … especially in states with fewer SBIR/STTR awardees
    • State-oriented FAST program is reestablished
  • …. while protecting against potential improprieties
    • Federal agencies are expected to offer guidance to SBIR/STTR awardees on fraud, waste and abuse – and to implement methods of curbing abuse
  • Statute allows all Phase I awardees to submit Phase II proposals
    • Agency practices are described in solicitations
  • Latest amendments to SBA’s SBIR/STTR Policy Directives may be found in Federal Register of January 8, 2014 at pg. 1303

The Navy Opportunity Forum is the Navy's Premiere Small Business Technology Event
  • Forum is culmination of 11 month Transition Assistance Program (TAP) and in its 13th year
  • Directly supports Legislation requiring DON to develop programs that help firms transition/ commercialize SBIR funded technology
  • Supports USD AT&L, SECNAV and DON RDA directives and policy memos
  • Wins documented praise by Congressional Armed Services and Small Business Committees
  • Documented record of Success of non-SBIR funding from DON PoR’s
  • The most cost effective method for generating “transition” which requires face to face briefings and discussions
