Selection Announcement

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.

Please return to https://sbir.nasa.gov for updates or contact the NASA SBIR/STTR Help Desk at sbir@reisystems.com (301) 937-0888.

Note: Since funding appropriations have not been enacted, the 2019 solicitation will not open today. Once the government re-opens, there will be a decision made on when the solicitation will open and close.

The NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 solicitation has not been released. Access to the URL for NASA’s draft SBIR/STTR FY2019 solicitation was inadvertently made available via the NASA SBIR/STTR Website. The URL has been removed and the draft version of the solicitation is no longer available. NASA will not be posting a synopsis or final solicitation until resolution of the lapse in Government appropriations. Also, during this lapse in Government appropriations, the Contracting Officer will not be available to respond to offeror questions, update the posted acquisition milestones/schedule or perform other procurement activities. Upon resolution of the lapse in Government appropriations, the Contracting Officer will assess the SBIR/STTR solicitation schedule to determine impacts and make updates as required. Please monitor the website and FedBizOps for any updates.
