Small-business owners can learn about Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) proposal preparation and cost proposal accounting during a two-day virtual workshop Tuesday and Wednesday, May 16-17.
Jim Greenwood will lead the discussion during a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network webinar titled “SBIR/STTR Phase I Proposal Preparation and Cost Proposal Accounting Virtual Workshop” from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. both days. To register, go here. Registration is free.
The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Greenwood will begin the workshop with a comprehensive overview of the SBIR/STTR programs, which covers all participating agencies. He then will cover planning for SBIR/STTR proposal strategies; discuss a process for developing a competitive Phase 1 proposal; and outline the proposal review process.
During the workshop’s second day, Greenwood will lead participants through -- and make sense of -- the perplexing world of the SBIR/STTR cost proposal and how to keep records to the government’s satisfaction when a small business wins an SBIR award. Additionally, Greenwood will show how to develop an indirect rate; discuss what to expect in the way of government audits; and help participants with government accounting terminology.
While aimed at SBIR/STTR competitors, this is a one-of-a-kind workshop that has proven valuable for any applicant for or recipient of government contracts and grants.
Greenwood, co-owner of Greenwood Consulting Group Inc., is a nationally recognized trainer and proposal reviewer for the SBIR and STTR programs. He has taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states, plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, federal laboratories, SBDCs and Manufacturing Extension Partnerships.
Small-business owners also will have the opportunity to meet with Greenwood one-on-one for strategy sessions. Preference for scheduling with Greenwood will be given to Wyoming small businesses. For one-on-one scheduling, email Kelly Haigler Cornish, Wyoming SBIR/STTR Initiative manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
