Pre-release DOD #SBIR/#STTR April 21, 2017

  • April 24, 2017

The DOD #SBIR 17.2 and the STTR 17.B Broad Agency Announcements (BAA) have been pre-released on the DOD #SBIR/#STTR Small Business Portal. You may now view the topics and ask technical questions through SITIS:

DOD BAA/Solicitation Changes:
Please note the new BAA close time! The closing time to submit proposals has been changed from 6:00 a.m. ET to 8:00 p.m. ET on the closing day in order to better suit the needs of proposers.

The Small Business Administration, through its #SBIR/#STTR Policy Directive, purposely departs from normal Government solicitation formats and requirements and authorizes agencies to simplify the #SBIR/#STTR award process and minimize the regulatory burden on small business.  Therefore, consistent with the SBA Policy Directive, the Department of Defense is soliciting #SBIR 17.2 and #STTR 17.B as Broad Agency Announcements.

About Pre-Release
For SBIR 17.2, the Army, Navy, Air Force, DARPA, DHA, DLA, DMEA, DTRA, MDA, NGA, and USSOCOM invite small businesses to propose innovative solutions to topics in this Announcement. For STTR 17.B, the Navy, Air Force, and DHA invite small businesses and research institutions to jointly propose cooperative research and development efforts in response to topics in this Announcement.
