New NIH Policy on Resubmission (Amended) Applications

October 8, 2008

NIH has announced a change in the policy on resubmission (amended) applications that applies to all applications including SBIR and STTR. Beginning with those submitted for the January 25, 2009 due date and beyond, all original new applications (i.e., never submitted) and competing renewal applications will be permitted only a single amendment (A1). Failure to receive funding after two submissions (i.e., the original and the single amendment) will mean that the applicant should substantially re-design the project rather than simply change the application in response to previous reviews. Details are included in Guide Notice NOT-OD-09-003.

SBIR Program Extended Temporarily Until March 20, 2009

September 16, 2008

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has informed agencies of recent legislative developments affecting the authorization of the SBIR Program, originally set to expire September 30, 2008. SBA has determined that P.L. 110-235 (signed into law on May 25, 2008), temporarily extends through March 20, 2009, all programs authorized under the Small Business Act and the Small Business Investment Act of 1958. SBA’s Acting General Counsel has provided official notification (PDF - 360 KB) to agencies that this extension includes the SBIR program. Therefore, agencies’ responsibilities for the SBIR Program will continue uninterrupted until March 20, 2009. (Note: The STTR Program is reauthorized through September 30, 2009.)
