The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) proposes to amend its regulations governing size and eligibility for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs. This proposed rule would implement provisions of the Defense Reauthorization Act. The proposed rule addresses ownership, control and affiliation for participants in the SBIR and STTR Programs. This includes participants that are majority-owned by multiple VCOCs, private equity firms, or hedge funds. You must submit your comments on or before July 16, 2012. Submit your comments at www.regulations.gov (RIN 3245-AG46). You may access the proposed rule at: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-05-15/html/2012-11586.htm. General information on the SBIR Size Rule and comment process:http://sbir.gov/news/implementing-sbir-and-sttr-reauthorization-seeking-public-comment A recording of the SBIR Size Rule webinar:https://connect16.uc.att.com/sba/meet/?RecordingKey=766F3155-2A95-4707-B243-48A07D109BF7 A PowerPoint presentation from the SBIR Size Rule webinar:http://sbir.gov/events/small-business-sbir-regulatory-roundtable
