Department of the Navy Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP) - Phase II.5 Miss Lee Ann Boyer May 15, 2013
DON SBIR/STTR Program Goal DON SBIR/STTR is an R&D program meeting critical Naval acquisition program and operational needs – a warfighter focus. We invest in small business, advocate for Naval technology customers, manage to help ensure transition, and track relevant data from Topic development through project expiration. The ultimate measure of success of any Navy SBIR/STTR project is the insertion of the technology into use by the fleet or forces.
DoN SBIR/STTR Program Award Structure Technology Development and Prototype Demonstration Prototype Testing & Evaluation Technology Demo & Validation Feasibility Study NOTE: A Phase II.5 is a Requirements Driven process; i.e., based upon Acquisition program needs. TTP: Technology Transition Plan TTA: Technology Transition Agreement NTE $3.15M Total SBIR/STTR Funding Phase III – can occur anytime after Phase I and is funded with non-SBIR $ Updated: 7 May 2013
Overview of Phase II.5 • Transition effort beyond initial Phase II • DoN sets aside 20% of SBIR funds for funding these efforts • Generally falls into 3 categories: • Enhancements - minimum of 1:1 concurrent matching, usually limited to $500K • Continued Development (CD)- requires signed TTP/TTA, no matching required, limited to $750K • Advanced Technology (AT)- usually requires signed TTP/TTA, 1:1 matching required may be concurrent or out-year, limited to $1.5M or balance of $1.5M if prior CD or Enhancement
Selection for Phase II.5 • Firm must be prior recipient of a Phase II contract under the topic ( if only recipient of Phase I then award is a Phase II not II.5). • Firms must meet Phase II eligibility requirements (size, ownership, % of work performed etc.) to be considered for Phase II.5. • In order to participate in Phase II.5, firms must be invited and selected by a Navy SYSCOM Transition manager. Some SYSCOMs review all their current portfolio for potential candidates others allow TPOCs to nominate specific projects. • The project must address a high priority Navy need. Project relevance to a planned or existing Acquisition Program, Future Naval Capability, or documented Technology Gap which must be identified in the TTP/TTA. • Must comply with any/all matching funds requirements and SBIR/STTR funding limits for Phase II.5.
