FY 2017 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Full Announcement/NOFOAdditional Information of Eligibility:
Each applicant must qualify as a small business concern 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 I 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.Full Opportunity Web Address:Contact: Agency Email Description: Agency Email:
