Technical and Business Assistance for SBIR/STTR Proposers

What is TABA?

  • The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization. (

  • Technical and Business Assistance (TABA) provides an opportunity to assist small businesses participating in the SBIR and STTR programs with commercializing its technology. The assistance is guided by Section 9 (b) of the SBIR/STTR Policy Directive, and it enables federal agencies to help small businesses by funding vendors to support commercializing their innovations or by providing additional funding directly to small businesses so they can contract their own vendors and consultants for commercialization purposes. (

  • FedTech is the preferred TABA service provider for Army Phase I & II SBIR/STTR, and NOAA Phase II Awardees. Therefore, if you received an Award from the abovementioned Agencies but did not request TABA services during the proposal writing stage, you're still eligible for TABA services from FedTech.

  • If your company is pursuing a SBIR/STTR Award from a US Government Agency and wish to select a specific TABA service provider, you must include a request to do so at the time of application submission, following the guidelines provided by each corresponding Agency.
