TABLE OF CONTENTS2002 NASA SBIR/STTR Program Solicitations1.
Program Description1.1 Introduction This document includes two NASA program solicitations with separate research areas under which small business concerns (SBCs) are invited to submit proposals: the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program.
Program background information, eligibility requirements for participants, the three program phases, and information for submitting responsive proposals is contained herein.
The 2002 Solicitation period for Phase I proposals begins June 6, 2002 and ends August 21, 2002.
The purposes ofthe SBIR/STTR programs, as established by law, are to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector; to strengthen the role of SBCs in meeting federal research and development needs; to increase the commercial application of these research results; and to encourage participation of socially and economically disadvantaged persons and women-owned small businesses.
To be eligible for selection, a proposal must be based on an innovation having high technical or scientific merit that is responsive to a NASA need described herein, and which offers potential commercial application.
NASA plans to select for award those proposals offering the best value to the Government and the Nation.Subject to the availability of funds, approximately 300 SBIR and 20 STTR Phase I proposals will be selected for negotiation of fixed-price contracts in November 2002.Historically, the ratio of Phase I proposals to awards is approximately 7:1 for SBIR and 5:1 for STTR, and approximately 40% of the selected Phase I contracts are selected for Phase II follow-on efforts. Government-wide SBIR policy is provided by the Small Business Administration (SBA) through its Policy Directive.1.2 Program Authority SBIR: This Solicitation is issued pursuant to the authority contained in P. The current law authorizes the program through September 30, 2008. Government-wide STTR policy is provided by the SBA through its Policy Directive.STTR: This Solicitation is issued pursuant to the authority contained in P. The current law authorizes the program through September 30, 2009.1.3 Program Management The Office of Aerospace Technology provides overall policy direction for the NASA SBIR/STTR programs.
