Customer Support Guide
To ensure your firm is best prepared throughout the lifecycle of the DoD SBIR/STTR proposal process, we have compiled some notable do’s and don’ts for your convenience:
During pre-release, proposers can contact TPOCs directly. Once DoD begins accepting proposals on November 30, 2021, no further direct contact between proposers and topic authors is allowed. Topic Q&A is available for proposers to submit technical questions at https://www.dodsbirsttr.mil/submissions/login beginning November 16, 2021. All questions and answers are posted electronically for general viewing. Topic Q&A will close to new questions on December 21, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. ET but will remain active to view questions and answers related to the topics until the BAA close.
