What's New

We've revamped the DOD SBIR/STTR Small Business Portal to create a more navigable user experience with additional resources, better tools, and an updated look.

The new website helps visitors:

  • Understand the features and benefits of SBIR/STTR program
  • Find topics and become informed of the Announcement and submission process
  • Begin the submission process

Take some time to familiarize yourself with the redesigned SBIR/STTR website, its new layout, and features. To maintain an agreeable user experience, the DOD SBIR/STTR Small Business Portal will be updated on a continuous basis.

DOD BAA/Solicitation Changes:

Attention to all small businesses and potential proposers!

The SBIR/STTR Broad Agency Announcements closing time has CHANGED to better serve the needs of the proposers. The Department of Defense agreed to extend the BAA closing time to give the maximum amount of time for small businesses to adequately complete their proposals. The closing time has been pushed from 6:00 a.m. ET to 8:00 p.m. ET on the closing day. This change will apply to the upcoming SBIR 18.2 and STTR 18.B, as well as to all BAAs thereafter.

Please refer to the full SBIR 18.2 and STTR 18.B schedule below:

SBIR Pre-Release Begins on April 20, 2018
Announcement Opens on May 22, 2018
SITIS Closes to New Questions on June 06, 2018
Announcement Closes on June 20, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. ET

New Features

  1. Reminder: The process for editing and submitting your proposal. Phase I Proposals must be withdrawn to be modified after submission and then re-submitted prior to the announcement close. Similarly, you can delete a non-submitted proposal at any time prior to the announcement close by withdrawing it. Withdrawing a proposal will change the status from ‘submitted’ to ‘in progress’ and will remove your proposal from consideration. Entries that have been deleted will not be available for recovery, so please make sure that you are certain you want to delete the proposal before doing so.

    You will not be able to withdraw or delete a submitted proposal after the Announcement closes.

  2. Reminder: The submission process is also different. When you are finished filling out your proposal, navigate to Step 5 (the Submit tab) and click the green “Submit Proposal” button in order to submit your proposal. (If you need to modify or delete your submitted proposal, please see previous feature).
  3. A firm is required to include their SBC ID number when either creating or joining a firm. You will not be able to submit a proposal without this identifying number.
  4. Training videos and related pdf’s are posted on the portal as a selection within the Help tab on the global navigation bar.
  5. FAQs have been updated to include sections for Fraud, Waste and Abuse, Phase II Enhancements, and About the Program of Record Commercialization Reporting System (PCRS).
  6. The updated Search for archived Topics and Awards are now a selection under the Archives tab.
  7. There is an updated process for starting a new Phase II with additional helper text.
