In this course, we’ll lead you through (and make sense of) the perplexing world of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) cost proposal.
Attendees will learn how to scope their project, how to develop an indirect rate (aka overhead, fringe, F&A, and G&A). Then, we’ll talk about how to apply that rate to an accurate and defensible cost proposal as part of your Phase I or Phase II SBIR/STTR project. You will learn important accounting terminology, how to keep records to the government’s satisfaction when you win an SBIR/STTR award, what FAR rules apply, and what to expect in the way of government audits.
While aimed at SBIR/STTR competitors, this is a one-of-a-kind workshop that has proven valuable for any applicant for/or recipient of government contracts and grants.
Presented by Jim Greenwood: Jim Greenwood and his wife, Gail, have been involved in the SBIR program since its inception in 1983. The Greenwoods have taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, federal laboratories, SBDCs, and MEPs. In addition to offering SBIR/STTR training, the Greenwoods provide applicants with critiques of draft proposals before they are finalized and submitted for funding. They have performed more than 1,100 such reviews over the past decade and have always been able to offer suggestions that made the proposals stronger contenders for SBIR/STTR funding.
