New Authorities to Transform SBIR Opportunities
Three new major authorities have been issued that should transform SBIR/STTR opportunities for entrepreneurs, industry, and the government acquisition community. They are:
  1. Better Buying Power 3.0 (BBP 3.0) – a fundamental DoD acquisition policy statement that creates important new on-ramps for small business in general and SBIR/STTR in particular. Procedures and processes to implement this broad policy statement are forthcoming. More information is on the BBP 3.0 web site at bbp.dau.mil/
  2. DoD Instruction 5000.02 (DoDI 5000.02) – a formal prescription, for the first time, of DoD acquisition goals and tracking/reporting requirements for SBIR/STTR in alignment with BBP 3.0.
  3. Tapping Into Small Business in a Big Way – a memo from Assistant Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley that provides SBIR/STTR implementation guidance to the DON’s acquisition community, with a focus on increased use of Phase III contracts to improve SBIR/STTR commercialization (i.e., deployment) outcomes and help acquisition management meet cost, schedule and performance goals.
Implementation of these authorities is the challenge before all of our SBIR community. We welcome your comments on how to take advantage of these new opportunities to improve the value proposition of the SBIR/STTR program. Please send your comments to comments151@navysbir.com

Posting of Navy FY-2015.2 SBIR Selections Begins
In order to keep small businesses informed about the Navy's 15.2 SBIR proposal selection status, the Navy posts a list of SBIR/STTR "Selectees" as they are chosen (see Browse Phase I Selections in the box on the 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 15_2selections.html page to receive email notifications of updates to the list.

Change in Navy SBIR/STTR Leadership
John Williams, long time Navy SBIR/STTR program director has left the Navy to become the Director of Innovation, at the SBA's Office of Investment and Innovation. In his new role at SBA, John will remain close to the SBIR/STTR programs for all eleven agencies.

The Navy's new director for SBIR/STTR is Bob Smith, from the Office of Naval Research.

No stranger to the Navy's SBIR/STTR programs, Bob has a long history of supporting technology development efforts in the Naval Research Enterprise (NRE). He has nearly 10 years of service on the OPNAV and Navy Secretariat staffs (RDA and Comptroller), as well as working at the Office of Naval Research on several technology transition programs, including the Navy's RIF program.

Each of these assignments allowed Bob to work on a multitude of issues affecting the programs and processes that help achieve our technical advantage, from answering warfighter immediate needs to supporting major acquisition programs and building the Navy's annual R&D budget.

Having served for 22 years in the Marine Corps, Bob has a keen appreciation as to the value of technology supporting the mission.

In accepting his new appointment, Bob stated: "I consider it an honor to lead the best SBIR/STTR program in DOD and the Federal government."
