Understanding the USDA SBIR Process and Preparing to Receive Funding

Jul 19th 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
On-line Webinar

This webinar provides an overview of what happens after you’ve submitted a USDA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program proposal. This information will not only help you when preparing a proposal, it will also ensure you are ready for the crucial next steps if you are recommended for an award.


Kris Bergman, Managing Partner at BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting (BBCetc), will go into detail about how SBIR submissions are reviewed. She’ll also tell you what to expect when you receive a “Just-in-Time” request if recommended for award.


Making it to the next step of the SBIR process is great news, but you need to be prepared so you are not caught scrambling to provide the host of requested information on short notice, such as proof of:

  •  An established, compliant accounting system
  •  A time and effort reporting system
  •  Policies and procedures for financial management
  •  And much more


Speaker: Kris Bergman is a managing partner and co-owner of BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting. Prior to purchasing the company in October 2016, Kris was Principal Consultant for Grants and Contracts Management, having joined BBCetc in 2000.


In addition to BBCetc’s financial and business management, Kris assists clients in preparing to receive and manage federal grant and contract funds. This includes advice on financial policies and procedures, DCAA compliance, budget development, indirect cost negotiation, Just-in-Time responses, using QuickBooks, and preparing for government audits.


Prior to joining BBCetc she owned and operated two different service startups before becoming the Global Sales Administrator or a major software development company.
