IEEE Position Paper on SBIR

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has issued a policy paper (dated 12 February 2010) regarding SBIR reauthorization. Their statement is in keeping with the quarter century success of the program, in support of retaining the 3-phase nature of the program, and preserving its focus on encouraging and seeding innovation from small independently-held businesses. They argue for increasing allocations to the program, and for streamlining the awards process to shorten decision making.

Common sense!
