NASA FY 2015 SBIR/STTR Pre-Release Announcement

November 5th, 2014 by Rebecca Norman

The anticipated release dated of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s 2015 Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer solicitation is on or about Nov. 14. The anticipated offer due date will be on or about Jan. 28, 2015.

The intent of NASA’s SBIR/STTR programs is to provide small businesses with opportunities to compete for federal research and development awards and to stimulate the commercialization of the resulting technology. The NASA 2015 solicitation will identify specific product areas within each subtopic that NASA wishes to emphasize.

Eligibility details for this program can be found on the NASA SBIR/STTR homepage. Once the solicitation is released on Nov. 14, it can also be viewed on the agency’s program home page.

All contractual technical questions must be submitted in writing to Cassandra Williams at nssc-contactcenter@nasa.gov . Telephone questions will not be accepted.

Arkansas-based companies who would like assistance with the preliminary steps required to ensure that they are eligible for SBIR/STTR funding (such as registrations in federal websites) are encouraged to contact Rebecca Norman at 501.683.7700 or rxnorman@ualr.edu.
