Federal Agencies

By careful design, passage of the original SBIR enabling legislation

  • imposed a program participation requirement on all federal agencies with an extramural R&D budget over $100M R&D
  • and required a common structure of the firm on award: Phases I and II To permit appropriate organization, effective access to, and analyses of data specific to each SBIR Source, areas designated Agency Brass Plates have been created and are maintained on the idi servers.
Disclaimer: Note carefully that, unless specified particularly, all materials, statements and analysis in these Offices are NOT those of the agency involved. Each of these areas provide ready access to:
  • Searchable Abstracts of all SBIR-STTR funded projects (1983 to the most recent awarded) in that agency
  • ...along with the usual Contact Information, email access, and Web connections to that agency's SBIR-STTR Home Page
