ReliAscent would like to remind all Federal Government Contractors that the Defense Department just opened their 2018.1/A SBIR/STTR Topic Pre-Release, today!  To view the topics and ask technical questions through SITIS, visit the DoD SBIR/STTR Portal.

During the Pre-Release period, contractors are allowed to contact the topic authors directly,  and ask technical questions about specific topics (contact information is listed within each topic). We highly recommend you take advantage of this opportunity to connect with authors, and ensure you have a clear understanding of what they are looking for.

The DOD begins accepting proposals on January 8, 2018, and will close on February 7, 2018, at 8:00 p.m. EST. ReliAscent advises that all contractors plan ahead and submit your proposal early.  There is always heavy traffic on the site during the final week, which can slow things down considerably.

Important Dates

  1. SBIR 18.1 and STTR 18.A Pre-release: November 29, 2018
  2. SBIR 18.1 and STTR 18.A Open for Submissions: January 8, 2018
  3. SITIS Q&A Close: January 31, 2018
  4. SBIR 18.1 and STTR 18.A Close: February 7, 2018

As always; if you have any questions about SBIR accounting requirements, FAR & DCAA compliance, and/or protecting you intellectual property when submitting SBIR/STTR proposals, please do not hesitate to contact ReliAscent.

Good luck!
