1 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET Department of Navy (DON) SBIR and STTR Program SBIR/STTR At A Glance March 4, 2014 Jack Griffin Deputy S&T Director PEO Littoral Combat Ships Distribution Statement A. Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited

2 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET DON SBIR/STTR Main Goals Use small business to develop innovative R&D that addresses a Navy or Marine Corps need – including energy efficiency improvements and cyber security improvements, as the DON mission evolves. Commercialize (Phase III) that technology into a DON platform or weapons/communication system, or for facilities use in expeditionary bases in new “pivot” locales in Africa and Asia. 2

3 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET Typical DON SBIR/STTR Phase I and Phase II Funding Landscape Each SYSCOM has own Phase II guidance (typical amounts shown) Phase I 6m $80K base 6m $70K option Phase II/II.5 Base & Option vary by SYSCOM Phase III Non-SBIR Funding (Government or Private) Production/Further R&D Idea Generation Prototype Development/ Demonstration Demonstration / Commercialization 3

4 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET SBIR/STTR projects derive from SYSCOM-generated Topics announced in quarterly solicitations. Over 80% of Navy Topics are selected by PEO/PM/FNC offices and address their specific needs, not just “sponsored by”. PEOs get back 90% of their SBIR/STTR “tax”, as Topics. They make Phase I and II selections and have Phase III funding. Many contracts monitored by lab employees with Acquisition Office POC involved. Acquisition Driven Process, with Strong Technology Pull

6 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET Generic SBIR/STTR Award Structure DON SYSCOMS tailor this model as needed Feasibility Study Technology Development and Prototype Demonstration Technology Development and Prototype Demonstration Prototype Testing & Evaluation Technology Demo & Validation Prototype Testing & Evaluation Technology Demo & Validation NTE $2.775M Total SBIR /STTR Funding NOTE: A ‘Subsequent Phase II’ is a Requirements Driven process; i.e., based upon Acquisition program needs. TTP: Technology Transition Plan TTA: Technology Transition Agreement Updated June 6, 2013 Phase III – can occur anytime after Phase I and is funded with non-SBIR/STTR$ Commercialization Transition Commercialization Transition

7 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET What’s New With SBIR/STTR? SBIR/STTR Reauthorization statute focuses on increased commercialization: – DoD services and components must set transition and insertion goals – All Federal agencies may offer increased transition assistance to awardees – Awardees must transition SBIR/STTR projects Phase II Transition Rate Benchmark – Applies to firms receiving >20 Phase Is over 5 years: 25% benchmark for winning Phase Iis. Commercialization Rate Benchmark – Applies to firms receiving >15 Phase IIs over 5 years: 25% benchmark for winning Phase IIIs. – Period of calculation excludes most recently completed fiscal year. Penalty – Awardees failing either benchmark are ineligible for a new Phase I or II award for one year from the time of determination (June 1). SBA notifies Agencies and ineligible firms, Agencies report denied applications. 7

8 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET What’s New With SBIR/STTR? Statute also focuses on opening access to SBIR/STTR – Federal agencies are required to develop and execute outreach plans to underserved populations, with emphasis on women and minority entrepreneurs … especially in states with fewer SBIR/STTR awardees – State-oriented FAST program is reestablished …. while protecting against potential improprieties – Federal agencies are expected to offer guidance to SBIR/STTR awardees on fraud, waste and abuse – and to implement methods of curbing abuse Statute allows all Phase I awardees to submit Phase II proposals – Agency practices are described in solicitations Latest amendments to SBA’s SBIR/STTR Policy Directives may be found in Federal Register of January 8, 2014 at pg

14 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET Why SBIR/STTR? Government’s incentives – Test drive small business capability – Proactive risk reduction – Early/high-risk S&T with SBIR/STTR funding – Competing approaches open up additional technology alternatives – Non-competitive follow-on awards – High level of matching funds Small Business’ incentives – Largest source of early stage R&D funds for small firms – Company retains data rights for 5 years (DoD) – Builds credibility of company’s research – Follow-on awards are non-competitive 14

15 DELIVERING SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION TO THE FLEET Tips for Succeeding with Navy SBIR/STTR Just getting started? – Research topics consistent with your business strategy – Current and past solicitations identify Navy technology needs – Know Navy structure – Submit proposals for problems you can solve – Prepare to be innovative Already have a Phase I? – Know your target platform/system for insertion – Build strategic partnerships (Primes, Universities, Acquisition Program Managers-Tech Directors-Requirements Officers) – Plan commercialization path early with TPOC 15
