As I draft this, the team here at BBC is experiencing the typical  increase in activity that occurs in the 30 day window prior to a grant deadline.

SBIR Continues… kind of

August 6th, 2010

The good news? – SBIR is still alive.  The not-so-good news?  – it is living on more borrowed time through another continuing resolution. What happened and what can you do?  See below. (Reprinted from the Center for Innovative Technology’s Federal Funding News, August 2010) The House just passed H. R. 5849, “To provide for an

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. How many times have you heard that advice?  Clearly I haven’t followed it if you take a look at my previous “Welcome to BBC’s Blog” post.  That was in March.  It is now July and I’ve yet to put up a new entry.  Each time

When is the April 5 NIH SBIR/STTR Deadline?

March 21st, 2012

That’s not quite a trick question. If you have been preparing a National Institutes of Health (NIH) SBIR/STTR grant submission, you are obviously aware that the deadline is 5 p.m. your local time on Thursday, April 5. However, since January 2011 there have been some important changes in the electronic submission process, so please read the

No Fooling…Do it Early to Get it Right

March 26th, 2012

With the upcoming April 5 NIH SBIR/STTR submission deadline, in last week’s blog I stressed the importance of submitting early.  Even with our warnings (and pleadings), we still find clients who choose to submit on the last day, and even in the last hour of the last day. As a result, every cycle we see clients

April 6th, 2012

In an effort to reduce the time from review to award, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that, effective April 20, 2012, anyone receiving an impact score* of 40 or less on a grant application will receive a notice requesting submission of JIT information.  JIT is an acronym for Just-In-Time and refers to the

Submitting to NIH? Get to the Point in Your Project Summary

November 5th, 2012

In a previous post, I advised those preparing SBIR/STTR proposals for NIH to consider the Specific Aims section the most important page in their submission. Also right up there in significance is the Project Summary/Abstract. The Project Summary/Abstract includes a summary of the proposed project activity suitable for dissemination to the public and understandable to

How do I know if NIH is interested in funding my SBIR/STTR project?

June 13th, 2013

The NIH is one of the ‘easier’ federal agencies to apply to because every year it issues an Omnibus Solicitation, requesting investigator- initiated topics. This means that rather than telling you exactly which projects they will fund, the NIH asks you, the investigator, to come up with the ideas. As long as these ideas are
