Session 1 – Proposal Preparation Workshop

February 10, 2021

DoD SBIR/STTR Proposal Prep with Jim Greenwood.

About Session 1: In this workshop, Jim Greenwood will walk you through the 7 steps of preparing and submitting a competitive Phase I SBIR or STTR to the Department of Defense. This presentation begins with a comprehensive overview of SBIR/STTR, followed by a simple but effective process for developing a competitive Phase I proposal. Emphasis will be put on Dept of Defense (DoD), but the materials will be relevant to a Phase I being submitted to any SBIR/STTR agency.

February 24, 2021

$BIR/$TTR Cost Proposal Prep with Jim Greenwood.

About Session 2: Join us for this half day intensive workshop led by Jim Greenwood on SBIR/STTR cost proposals and government accounting. Jim will lead you through and make sense of the perplexing world of the SBIR/STTR cost proposal, and how to keep records to the government’s satisfaction when you win an SBIR award. You will learn how to develop an indirect rate, what to expect in the way of government audits, and help you with government accounting terminology. While aimed at SBIR/STTR competitors, this is a one-of-a-kind workshop that has proven valuable for any applicant for or recipient of government contracts and grants.
