Although the assessment questions are generic and apply to all SBIR/STTR programs, every agency must be viewed as a distinct customer. Companies that wish to be successful in winning proposals must learn the requirements and differentiating features of each agency customer. Please see below for a list of resources and links to various agency SBIR/STTR programs to get you started.
