Links on this page allow you to research SBIR and STTR Phase I award selectees and contract award recipients; Fast Track Award recipients and Enhancement Award recipients.
Receiving an SBIR or STTR contract is a two-step process. First, approximately six months after a solicitation closes, companies selected as finalists for Phase I SBIR or STTR funding are listed on the Selection Listing page. Then, following completion of final administrative details, companies are awarded contracts and can begin work on their projects. Though the vast majority of companies selected for an award actually receive a contract, there are a few that do not advance from the "selection" step to the "contract" award.
Contract award recipients are searchable online. You are able to search by abstract, proposal title, keywords, firm, topic number—or a combination of several. Data is updated quarterly. Use the Custom Search feature to conduct searches using any field in the database.
The DoD's SBIR and STTR programs have featured a Fast Track process for projects that attract outside investors who will match Phase II funding, in cash, contingent on the project's selection for Phase II award. Projects that obtain such outside investments are listed here.
DoD Components offer their own Phase II Enhancement policy to further encourage the transition of SBIR or STTR research into DoD acquisition programs as well as the private sector. Under this policy, the Component provides a Phase II company with additional Phase II SBIR or STTR funding matching the investment funds the company obtains from non-SBIR/non-STTR sources such as DoD acquisition programs or the private sector. Recipients of Phase II Enhancements (also called Phase II Plus) are listed here.
TECH-Net is the Small Business Administration's Internet-based database containing SBIR and STTR awards across all federal agencies participating in the Programs.
