Once DoD begins accepting proposals on February 28, 2011, no further direct contact between proposers and topic authors is allowed, but proposers may submit written technical questions through the SBIR/STTR Interactive Topic Information System (SITIS), in which the questioner and respondent remain anonymous and all questions and answers are posted electronically for general viewing. SITIS closes to new questions on March 16, 2011. All questions and answers will be posted through March 30, 2011. All proposers are advised to monitor SITIS at during the solicitation period for questions and answers and other information relevant to the topic under which they are proposing.

Proposal Submission

Proposals must be submitted via the DoD SBIR/STTR Submission website at following the instructions contained in the solicitation, including the instructions specified in the topic files for the DoD component to which you are applying. Submissions must include the proposal cover sheets, technical proposal, Company Commercialization Report, and cost proposal to be considered a complete proposal. Small businesses submitting proposals through the Submission website may modify their proposals at any time until the solicitation closing on March 30, 2011 at 6:00 a.m. ET. To use the DoD SBIR/STTR Submission website your browser must have scripting enabled and, if your firm has any Phase II awards, commercialization resulting from all prior Phase II awards must be reported and up to date. Offerors bear the risk of website inaccessibility due to heavy usage in the final hours before the solicitation closing time, so plan ahead and submit early.

Commercialization Reporting

In order to properly evaluate your firm’s commercialization efforts, as well as to reliably measure the performance and impact of the SBIR and STTR Programs, you must review and ensure that your Company Commercialization data is complete, current, and accurate. The Company Commercialization Report must list every prior SBIR and STTR Phase II award received from any federal agency, regardless of whether the Phase II has commercialized to date. Phase III sales and investment figures, as well as manufacturing-related R&D and other commercialization information, must be updated within the last 12 months for all Phase II awards. For more information, see Guidance for Completing the Company Commercialization Report: Instructions and Definitions on the Company Commercialization section of the DoD Submission website.
