The Department of Defense SBIR/STTR 19.1/A Broad Agency Announcements (BAA) were pre-released yesterday on the DOD SBIR/STTR Small Business Portal. During the pre-release period, contractors may now view topics and ask technical questions directly to topic authors (contact information can be found at the bottom of each individual topic). Topics can be viewed at: https://sbir.defensebusiness.org/topics.
The DOD will begin accepting proposals on January 8, 2019, and will close to proposals on February 6, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. ET. Plan ahead and submit your proposal early to avoid heavy traffic on the site during the final week.
