Why Register?

Company Registry

All applicants to the program are required to complete their registration at SBA's Company Registry prior to submitting an application. Completed registrations will receive a unique SBC Control ID and .pdf file to be used for submissions at any of the 11 participating agencies in the SBIR or STTR programs.

Performance Benchmarks

SBIR agencies have established performance benchmarks that applicants must meet in order to apply for and receive funding through the SBIR program. The purpose of these benchmarks is to ensure that repeat Phase I awardees are attempting to have and have had some success in receiving Phase II awards and commercializing their research. As a result, these benchmarks will only apply to those Phase I applicants that have received more than 20 Phase I awards. View Benchmarks

Completed registrations will have access to their company's calculated benchmarks using award data across all agencies.

Restricted Access

Company ownership and commercialization information collected will not be distributed or displayed on the public facing site and is for internal use only.

Participating Federal Agency users desiring UserID and access should use the New User link under the Login link.
