DoD FY-2014.1 SBIR |
Opens December 20, 2013 Closes January 22, 2014 6:00am
The DoD issued its 2014.1 SBIR pre-release on November 20, 2013, which opens to receive proposals on December 20, 2013, and closes January 22, 2014 at 6:00am EST.
The solicitation is inclusive of 82 topics from 7 of the Navy's SYSCOMS.
During the solicitation period, communication between small businesses and topic authors is highly encouraged. During the Pre-Release period (November 20 through December 19), you may talk directly with topic authors to ask technical questions about the topics. Their names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses are listed within each solicitation topic.
For reasons of competitive fairness, direct communication between proposers and topic authors is not allowed after December 19, when the DoD is accepting proposals for the solicitation.
However, proposers may still submit written questions about solicitation topics through the SBIR/STTR Interactive Topic Information System (SITIS). In SITIS the questioner and respondent are anonymous and all questions and answers are posted electronically for general viewing until the solicitation closes. All proposers are advised to monitor SITIS during the Open solicitation period for questions and answers and other significant information relevant to their SBIR/STTR topics of interest.
Complete solicitation instructions and forms are available on the DoD SBIR/STTR web site at www.acq.osd.mil/osbp/sbir/solicitations/sbir20141/index.shtml.
Changes to Phase II Proposal Process for FY-13 & Beyond
The SBIR/STTR Reauthorization Act of 2011 brought about many changes to the SBIR and STTR programs. Some of the changes took place immediatly while others were engaged as new solicitations were made.
Many of the changes to the SBIR/STTR Phase II process commenced with the issuing of the DoD's FY-13.1 solicitation. These changes do not affect solicitations prior to FY-13.1.
For this reason we now have separate Phase II guidance, one for FY-12.3 and earlier, and one for FY-13.1 and beyond.
Schedule of Navy FY-2014 SBIR/STTR solicitations
The Navy SBIR/STTR solicitations are released as part of the DoD SBIR/STTR solicitation process. On average, the DoD releases 3 SBIR solicitations per fiscal year, and 2 STTR solicitations. The Navy participates in all 3 SBIR solicitations, and generally 1 STTR solicitation per year.

Navy Transition Assistance Program (TAP)
Posting of Navy FY-2013.2 SBIR Selections Begins
In order to keep small businesses informed about a solicitation's proposal selection status, the Navy posts lists of SBIR/STTR "Selectees" as they are chosen (see Browse Phase I
Selections in the box on the upper right). A selectee is a company selected for "further consideration", meaning that the proposal is of interest, but the final decision and contract
negotiation is not complete. Being listed as a selectee on this web site is NOT a notification of contract award.
The list of selections is an ongoing process that may take several months to complete. You can register on the 13.2 SBIR Selections page to
receive email notifications of updates to the list.
