DOE Phase II Diversity Supplements

New! The maximum funding request for the Phase II Diversity Supplement has been increased to $20,000.

DOE SBIR and STTR awardees that receive a Phase II grant are eligible to apply for an administrative diversity supplement to be effective in the summer months of their Phase II during the second year project period. The purpose of the Phase II supplement is to improve the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting undergraduate and graduate students from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in federal SBIR/STTR research programs. To facilitate an application for a diversity supplement request, please use the following template and budget form. For full instructions on Phase II awardee eligibility, how, and when to submit a diversity supplement, all first year Phase II awardees should refer to the Phase II Funding Opportunity Announcement to which they received their Phase II award.

Phase III Preference

DOE National Laboratories should give preference to SBIR/STTR firm that developed the technology to the greatest extent practicable.  When discussing this acquisition preference with the National Laboratories, this memo from DOE Headquarters may be useful.  Please note that that this preference applies only when the National Laboratories are acquiring a specific technology developed under the SBIR/STTR programs.  DOE Laboratories are not precluded from holding open competition for other less focused acquisitions in compliance with the applicable procurement laws, regulations and policy.  Questions should be directed to Laboratory procurement professionals, particularly professionals assigned to small business contracting.
