SBIR/STTR Cost Accounting and Budget Prep
In this interactive online course, we’ll examine SBIR/STTR cost proposals and how to keep records to the government’s satisfaction when you win an SBIR award. We show you how to develop an indirect rate, what to expect in the way of government audits and help you 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.
Presenter: Jim Greenwood and his wife, Gail, have been involved in the SBIR program since its inception in 1983. The Greenwoods have 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 MEPs. In addition to offering SBIR/STTR training, the Greenwoods provide applicants with critiques of draft proposals before they are finalized and submitted for funding. They have performed more than 1,100 such reviews over the past decade and have always been able to offer suggestions that made the proposals stronger contenders for SBIR/STTR funding. They are recipients of the coveted Tibbetts Award, based on their contributions to SBIR/STTR outreach and education efforts, and were recognized by the Small Business Technology Council as “Champions for Small Business” for their outreach efforts during the latest SBIR/STTR programs reauthorization effort. Jim Greenwood has served as a commercialization reviewer for National Science Foundation’s SBIR and STTR programs, and is a coach for applicants participating in Dept of Energy’s Phase 0 program for newcomers to SBIR/STTR.
