SBA Office of Technology The SBA Office of Technology

This branch of the Small Business Administration strengthens and expands the competitiveness of U. S. small high-tech research and development businesses in the federal marketplace. It also assists in achieving the commercialization of the results of both the federal research and development programs mandated by the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982 and the Small Business Research and Development Enhancement Act of 1992.

The Office carries out its mission through the following programs and initiatives:

By promoting federal small business high-tech programs, the Office of Technology seeks to improve the competitive capability of small research and development businesses, with particular emphasis on emerging and underserved small firms. It encourages state-of-the-market technology training, technology information exchange, and outreach on federal technology programs.

The Office also encourages private and public resource support for the commercialization of federal R & D efforts. It promotes outreach activities to introduce women- and minority-owned small businesses to the advantages of competing for federal R & D projects, and hosts the annual Tibbetts Awards which recognizes SBIR recipients from all 50 states who have excelled in the research and development arena.
