This session delves into the perplexing world of government accounting, and the all-important SBIR/STTR cost proposal. This workshop focuses on development of an indirect rate (aka overhead, fringe, F&A, G&A) for your company, and then how to apply that rate to an accurate and defensible cost proposal as part of your Phase I or II SBIR/STTR proposals. IF you don’t learn this stuff, and try to wing it, you will make mistakes and you will lose money.
Speakers: Jim Greenwood and his wife, Gail, have been involved in the SBIR program since its inception in 1983. The Greenwoods have taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, Federal laboratories, SBDCs and MEPs. The Greenwoods also have taught at many of the National SBIR Conferences in the past decade, including the most recent national conferences in New Orleans, Portland, Washington DC and Austin. They are recipients of the coveted Tibbetts Award, based on their contributions to SBIR/STTR outreach and education efforts, and were recognized by the Small Business Technology Council as “Champions for Small Business” for their outreach efforts during the latest SBIR/STTR programs reauthorization effort.
