UPDATE: Since funding appropriations have not been enacted, the 2019 solicitation did not open on January 7, 2019. However, NASA has released the draft research topics for 2019 SBIR and STTR . NASA will not answer any technical questions pertaining to the draft research topics. Once the government re-opens, there will be a decision made on when the solicitation will open and close.
Annual funding for the government expired at 11:59 p.m. on December 21, 2018. In the absence of either a fiscal year (FY) 2019 appropriation, or a continuing resolution, NASA may incur no further financial obligations except with limited exceptions for specific activities.
The Electronic Handbook (EHB) will be available for your scheduled deliverables and submittals; however, no NASA personnel will be available to review or accept them until after appropriations are enacted. Awardees eligible to submit 2018 phase 2 proposals must still submit a phase 2 proposal through the EHB by the date specified in the phase 1 contract.
