SBIR Successfully Extended “As-Is” Until September 30th, 2011

The SBIR Program (along with STTR and the CPP) have been extended in a Continuing Resolution through September 30th, 2011 after a bi-partisan House vote of 387-33 to suspend S.1082, and extend the programs “as-is” until September 30th, 2011. To view which Representatives voted for and against this extension, click here. This will provide 4 more months for the Senate and House to continue to develop a true plan of action toward a full SBIR Re-Authorization.  This measure should also ensure that funds allocated to SBIR, STTR and CPP for Fiscal Year 2011 should now be released.

But with a 4 month extension, there is more work left to be done.  We must continue to be vigilant in reaching out to our Senators and Congressmen and ensuring they hear from small business owners to understand how SBIR Re-Authorization specifically effects each one of us.

You can continue to monitor the situation through Rick Shindell’s SBIR Gateway.

The best way to get involved is to become an advocate for SBIR by joining the SBTC & SBBC membership.  As board members, Jameson & Company are active members of these groups and stay in touch with all the latest news on SBIR Re-Authorization. To join, visit the Small Business Technology Council website or visit the Small Biotechnology Business Coalition if you are an NIH SBIR based company.

I’ve been in practice for over 40 years helping our small business clients procure, manage, and survive audits on more than $6 billion in federal government contract and grant funding. We’ve been featured presenters and panel moderators at Tech Connect’s National SBIR/STTR conferences since 2010, and I’ve presented at the DOD’s Mentor Protégé Summit and present regularly for several state and local organizations.
