Dept. of Commerce - Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Phase II. Deadline: 6/17/22.

Opportunity Title:

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Phase II

Opportunity Number:



The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites FY 2021 NIST SBIR Phase I awardees to submit Phase II research applications under this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). Only FY 2021 NIST SBIR Phase I awardees are eligible to submit applications in response to this NOFO for Phase II of their projects.


Under this NOFO, only FY 2021 NIST SBIR Phase I awardees are eligible to submit applications. Applications received from entities other than FY 2021 NIST SBIR Phase I awardees will not be reviewed or considered for award. Each applicant must qualify as an SBC for R/R&D purposes, as defined in Section 1.05 of this NOFO, at the time of award. In addition, the primary employment of the principal investigator must be with the small business at the time of the award and during the conduct of the proposed research. Primary employment means that more than one-half of the principal investigator's time is spent working with the small business. Primary employment with a small business precludes full-time employment with another organization. Occasionally, deviations from this requirement may occur, which must be approved in writing by the NIST Grants Officer after consultation with the SBIR Program Manager. Further, a small business may only replace the principal investigator on an SBIR Phase II award if the NIST Grants Officer provides prior written approval. Personnel obtained through a Professional Employer Organization or other similar personnel leasing company may be considered employees of the awardee.
