Small-business owners will have an opportunity to make sense of the perplexing world of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) cost proposal and how to keep records to the government’s satisfaction when a small business wins an SBIR award.
Jim Greenwood will lead the discussion during a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network online workshop titled “Understanding the SBIR/STTR Cost Proposal and Government Accounting” from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, March 29. To register, go here. Registration is free.
The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The workshop will show small-business owners how to develop an indirect rate; what to expect in the way of government audits; and understand government accounting terminology. While aimed at SBIR/STTR competitors, this one-of-a-kind workshop has proven valuable for any applicant for or recipient of government contracts and grants.
Greenwood, co-owner of Greenwood Consulting Group Inc., is a nationally recognized trainer and proposal reviewer for the SBIR and STTR programs. He has 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 Manufacturing Extension Partnerships.
