The Small Business Research and Development Enhancement Ac t of 1992 ( Public law 102-564) established the Small Business Technology Transfer ( STTR) Program. The SBIR/STTR programs are driven by SBA best practices and are designed to strengthen the DoD's buying power and to improve industry productivity. SBA uses these programs to ensure that small, high- tech, innovative businesses are a significant part of the federal Government's research and development efforts. Both programs have been reauthorized several times since their inception. Congress has reauthorized the SBIR/STTR Programs through September 30, 2017. All DoD SBIR/STTR Programs will continue to follow the current SBIR Policy Directive and STTR Policy Directive ( unless otherwise noted in the SBA Implementation Policy ) until new policy directives are released by the SBA and the DoD develops policy to implement any changes .
