Summary
Congress directed the National Research Council (NRC) to evaluate the quality of SBIR research and evaluate the SBIR program's value to the agency mission. It called for an assessment of the extent to which SBIR projects achieve some measure of commercialization, as well as an evaluation of the program's overall economic and noneconomic benefits. It also called for additional analysis as required to support specific recommendations on areas such as measuring outcomes for agency strategy and performance, increasing federal procurement of technologies produced by small business, and overall improvements to the SBIR program. This study by the NRC represents the first, systematic external analysis of the program's operations, challenges, and accomplishments over the 20 years of its history. It provides an empirical analysis of the operations of the program and assesses the quality of research projects conducted under SBIR, the commercialization of research, and the program's contribution to accomplishing agency missions
