Watch Important Webinar on DOD’s Foreign Ownership Requirement
On August 17, 2023 BBCetc hosted Tina Barnhill from the Office of the Secretary of Defense to discuss the DOD SBIR/STTR program. Tina provided an overview of the DOD SBIR/STTR program, along with special emphasis on the new requirement to disclose foreign ownership/foreign influence. ALL SBIR/STTR proposals submitted to DOD must include the new Foreign Ownership/Foreign Influence form. Contact your BBCetc Consultant for further information on how to complete and submit this form. If you were unable to attend the August 17, 2023 webinar, you can watch the recording here.
