Entities that are, at the time of award, small business concerns as defined by the Small Business Administration (SBA). This definition is included in the application package.

If it appears that an applicant organization does not meet the
eligibility requirements, we will request an evaluation by the SBA.
Under circumstances in which eligibility is unclear, we will not make
an SBIR award until the SBA makes a determination that the applicant is
eligible under its definition of small business concern.

Technology, science, and engineering firms with strong research
capabilities in any of the priority areas listed in this notice are
encouraged to participate. Consultative or other arrangements between
these firms and universities or other nonprofit organizations are
permitted, but the small business concern must serve as the grantee.
For Phase I projects, at least two-thirds of the research or analytic
activities must be performed by the small business concern grantee.

The Purpose Of The SBIR Program Is Four-fold:
1. Stimulate Technological Innovation In The Private Sector.
2. Encourage Participation In Innovation And Entrepreneurship By Socially And Economically Disadvantaged Persons.
3. Strengthen The Role Of Small Business In Meeting Federal Research And Development (R&D) Needs.
4. Increase Private-sector Commercialization Of Innovations Derived From U.S. Department Of Education (Department) R&D Funding.
