General Questions

Are you taking advantage of DTA?
by Brent Roeder

Questions? email me

Many U.S. government agencies contract with a third party to provide commercialization services to small businesses with an active Phase I or Phase II SBIR award. However, many of these agencies will give you additional funding on your SBIR to select your own provider through an option called Discretionary Technical Assistance (DTA*).

DTA allows you to select your own provider, and add additional funding to your SBIR project to support commercialization activities, at no cost to your project. Here are several organizations that support this option.

Agency Phase I Amount Phase II Amount
DoD (all except AF) $5,000 $10,000
DoE $5,000 $10,000
DoT $5,000 $10,000
DHS $5,000 $10,000
NASA Not Available $5,000

We have found that DTA funds are best used to accelerate the transition of a small businesses’ technology to a commercial product by identifying new applications and defining specific transition pathways and requirements. By building relationships with end users and system integrators, specific markets can be targeted and transition risks will be reduced.

TechOpp Consulting has a lot of experience with DTA. If you have any questions about how it works, email me and I’ll be happy to answer them.
