Summary
  • "The SBIR program allocates 2.5 percent of 11 federal agencies' extramural R&D budgets to fund R&D projects by small businesses, providing approximately $2 billion annually in competitive awards. At the request of Congress, the National Academies conducted a comprehensive study of how the SBIR program has stimulated technological innovation and used small businesses to meet federal research and development needs. Drawing substantially on new data collection, this book examines the SBIR program at the Department of Defense and makes recommendations for improvements. Separate reports will assess the SBIR program at NSF, NIH, DOE, and NASA, respectively, along with a comprehensive report on the entire program" -- Publisher's website
  • The Committee's complete findings and recommendations are listed in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 provides a comprehensive overview of the distribution of SBIR awards by DoD, providing a basis (as drawn out in Chapter 4) for understanding program outcomes. Chapter 5 describes the Phase III challenge of commercialization at DoD. Chapter 6 describes the diversity of management structures as well as current practices and recent reforms found among the different services and agencies that fund SBIR programs at DoD. Together, this report provides the most detailed and comprehensive picture to date of the SBIR program at the Department of Defense
