IMPORTANT: Proposals submitted to the AF are received and evaluated by different offices within the Air Force and handled on a Topic-by-Topic basis. Each office operates within their own schedule for proposal evaluation and selection. Updates and notification timeframes will vary by office and Topic. If your company is contacted regarding a proposal submission, it is not necessary to contact the AF to inquire about additional submissions. Check the Small Business Area of the AF SBIR/STTR site for a current update. Additional notifications regarding your other submissions will be forthcoming.
We anticipate having all the proposals evaluated and our Phase I contract decisions within approximately three months of proposal receipt. All questions concerning the status of a proposal, or debriefing, should be directed to the local awarding organization SBIR Program Manager. Organizations and their Topic Numbers are listed later in this section (before the Air Force Topic descriptions).
PHASE II PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS
Phase II is the demonstration of the technology that was found feasible in Phase I. Only Phase I awardees are eligible to submit a Phase II proposal. All Phase I awardees will be sent a notification with the Phase II proposal submittal date and a link to detailed Phase II proposal preparation instructions. If the mail or email address(es) or firm points of contact havechanged since submission of the Phase I proposal, correct information shall be sent to the AF at afprogram@afsbirsttr.net. Please note that it is solely the responsibility of the Phase I awardee to contact this individual. Phase II efforts are typically two (2) years in duration with an initial value not to exceed $750,000.
NOTE: Phase II awardees should have a Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) approved accounting system. It is strongly urged that an approved accounting system be in place prior to the AF Phase II award timeframe. If you have questions regarding this matter, please discuss with your Phase I Contracting Officer.
All proposals must be submitted electronically at https://sbir.defensebusiness.org/. The complete proposal – Department of Defense (DoD) Cover Sheet, entire Technical Volume with appendices, Cost Volume and the Company Commercialization Report – must be submitted by the date indicated in the invitation. The Technical Volume is limited to 50 pages (unless a different number is specified in the invitation). The Commercialization Report, any advocacy letters, SBIR Environment Safety and Occupational Health (ESOH) Questionnaire, and Cost Volume Itemized Listing (a-i) will not count against the 50 page limitation and should be placed as the last pages of the Technical Volume file that is uploaded. (Note: Only one file can be uploaded to the DoD Submission Site. Ensure that this single file includes your complete Technical Volume and the additional Cost Volume information.) The preferred format for submission of proposals is Portable Document Format (.pdf). Graphics must be distinguishable in black and white. Please virus-check your submissions.
AIR FORCE PHASE II ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM
On active Phase II awards, the Air Force may request a Phase II enhancement application package from a limited number of Phase II awardees. In the Air Force program, the outside investment funding must be from a Government source, usually the Air Force or other military service. The selected enhancements will extend the existing Phase II contract awards for up to one year. The Air Force will provide matching SBIR funds, up to a maximum of $750,000, to non-SBIR Government funds. If requested to submit a Phase II enhancement application package, it must be submitted through the DoD Submission Web site at https://sbir.defensebusiness.org/. Contact the local awarding organization SBIR Program Manager (see Air Force SBIR Organization Listing) for more information.
AIR FORCE SBIR PROGRAM MANAGEMENT IMPROVEMENTS
The AF reserves the right to modify the Phase II submission requirements. Should the requirements change, all Phase I awardees will be notified. The AF also reserves the right to change any administrative procedures at any time that will improve management of the AF SBIR Program.
AIR FORCE SUBMISSION OF FINAL REPORTS
All Final Reports will be submitted to the awarding AF organization in accordance with the Contract. Companies will not submit Final Reports directly to the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC).

16.1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)

Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) Requirements

DFARS 252.227-7018(b)(8), Rights in Noncommercial Technical Data and Computer Software – Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program (May 2013), allows Government support contractors access to SBIR data without company-to-company NDAs only AFTER the support contractor notifies the SBIR firm of its access to the SBIR data AND the SBIR firm agrees in writing no NDA is necessary. If the SBIR firm does not agree, a company-to-company NDA is required.


“Covered Government support contractor” is defined in 252.227-7018(a)(6) as “a contractor under a contract, the primary purpose of which is to furnish independent and impartial advice or technical assistance directly to the Government in support of the Government’s management and oversight of a program or effort (rather than to directly furnish an end item or service to accomplish a program or effort), provided that the contractor—
(i) Is not affiliated with the prime contractor or a first-tier subcontractor on the program or effort, or with any direct competitor of such prime contractor or any such first-tier subcontractor in furnishing end items or services of the type developed or produced on the program or effort; and
(ii) Receives access to the technical data or computer software for performance of a Government contract that contains the clause at 252.227-7025, Limitations on the Use or Disclosure of Government-Furnished Information Marked with Restrictive Legends.”
USE OF SUPPORT CONTRACTORS:
Support contractors may be used to administratively process SBIR documentation or provide technical support related to SBIR contractual efforts to Government Program Offices.
Below, please provide your firm’s determination regarding the requirement for company-to-company NDAs to enable access to SBIR documentation by Air Force support contractors. This agreement must be signed and included in your Phase I/II proposal package
