For 30 years, federal agencies have made awards to small businesses for tech. R&D through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and, more recently, through the Small Business Tech. Transfer (STTR) program. Each participating agency must manage its SBIR and STTR programs in accordance with program laws, regulations, and policy directives issued by the Small Business Admin. (SBA), whose Office of Tech. oversees and coordinates agency efforts for the programs. The Nat. Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012 enacted on Dec. 31, 2011, reauthorized the SBIR and STTR programs through Sept. 30, 2017. Among other things, the act required SBA to make certain changes by March 30, 2012, to its SBIR and STTR policy directives to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.
