Hosted by the Arkansas Small Business & Technology Development Center, this half-day virtual workshop, led by Jim Greenwood of Greenwood Consulting Group, will cover one of the most important but least appreciated aspects of the SBIR/STTR programs, the cost proposal. There are many rules and regs hiding behind the cost proposal, and they will tend to bite you if you don’t get a handle on them. And if you don’t know how to set up your cost proposal, or don’t appropriately track expenses (especially labor) when you get the SBIR/STTR award, you will lose money.
Come learn the terminology and concepts, and how to estimate your own indirect (aka overhead or F&A) rate, and how to request and justify a profit/fee as part of the budget. Jim will additionally be meeting with attendees for 1-on-1 sessions a week following this event. The details on this consulting opportunity will be provided to workshop attendees.
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 (including Lawrence Livermore, Sandia, Los Alamos, Pacific Northwest, and Oak Ridge), SBDCs and MEPs.
