Department of Commerce - NOAA SBIR Phase II. Deadline - 4/1/22. $8M Available.
FY 2022 NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) Phase II
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program was originally established in 1982 by the Small Business Innovation Development Act (P.L. 97-219), codified at 15 U.S.C. § 638. It was then expanded and extended by the Small Business Research and Development Enhancement Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-564), and received subsequent reauthorization and extensions, the most recent of which extends the SBIR program through 2022. (P.L. 114-328).
Each Federal agency with an extramural budget for Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) in excess of $100,000,000 must participate in the SBIR program and spend (obligate) a minimum percentage of their extramural R/R&D budgets (obligations) of not less than 3.2% of such budget in fiscal year 2017 and for the percentage required by statute for each fiscal year after for awards to small business concerns (SBCs) for R/R&D under the SBIR program. The objectives of the SBIR program are to: stimulate technological innovation in the private sector; strengthen the role of small business in meeting Federal R&D needs; foster and encourage participation by businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged persons and women-owned SBCs in technological innovation; and increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from federal R&D funding.
Fostering diversity by encouraging the participation of individuals from nationally underrepresented groups in the scientific research workforce is longstanding interest of Congress, and a key component of NOAA’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. Increasing participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses is critical to the success of the SBIR program.
Only FY 2021 NOAA SBIR Phase I awardees under NOFO number NOAA-OAR-OAR TPO-2021-2006702 with project start dates of September 1, 2021 and project end dates of no later than February 28th, 2022 are eligible to submit a Phase II application in response to this NOFO.
