Dear SBIR Insider,

We promised (in our last issue) to let you know when the SBA offers updates on the state of SBIR/STTR.

Mr. Sean Greene, SBA's Associate Administrator for Investment and Innovation (and SBIR's Capo di tutti capo) has just posted "Implementing the SBIR and STTR Reauthorization: Our Plan of Attack," on the SBA's blog.

The post is done in Greene's engaging but relaxed style, and will enlighten you (as much as possible at this time) as to the procedures and projected timelines to implementation of the new SBIR and STTR provisions.

The main blog post (well formatted) is located at:
http://community.sba.gov/community/blogs/official-sba-news-and-views/open-business/implementing-sbir-and-sttr-reauthorization-our-plan-attack

The same information in a less formatted presentation is available on SBIR.GOV at:
http://sbir.gov/news/implementing-sbir-and-sttr-reauthorization-our-plan-attack

With all due respect to SBA, we still must consider the metaphor "The best-laid plans of mice, men and bureaucrats often go awry." We outlined some potential snafus in our last issue (see www.zyn.com/sbir/insider/sb-insider2-14-12.htm ) and have received some expert comments from consummate professionals on these issues. We will share those with you in our next issue.

Keep in mind that regardless of policy directive discussions, you should carefully follow the instructions in an agency's solicitation.

Sincerely,

Rick
