Small Business Research Programs: Actions Needed to Improve Compliance with Spending and Reporting Requirements
Frank Rusco (au)
The Small Business Act established the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs to use small businesses to meet federal R&D needs. The law mandates that agencies, with extramural R&D budgets that meet the thresholds for participation, must spend a percentage of these annual budgets on the SBIR and STTR programs. The agencies are to report on their activities to the Small Business Admin. (SBA) and, in turn, SBA is to report to Congress. Eleven agencies participate in SBIR, and five of them also participate in STTR. This report determined, for FY 2006-2011, (1) the extent to which participating agencies complied with spending requirements and how the agencies calculated these requirements; (2) the extent to which participating agencies and SBA complied with certain reporting requirements; (3) the potential effects of basing the spending requirements on an agencyńˇ╗s total R&D budget; and (4) the cost to participating agencies of SBIR and STTR program administration. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
