SBIR/STTR Cost Proposal and Accounting Workshop

SBIR/STTR Cost Proposal and Accounting Workshop

WHEN: October 26, 2010 – 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: TRDA Business Innovation Center, 1050 W. NASA Blvd., Melbourne, FL
COST: $49

Small businesses receive more than $2 billion in federal grants and contracts each year through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. This TRDA workshop will focus on cost proposal and accounting, including formats, preparation, audits and basic government accounting concepts.

Government accounting and SBIR/STTR cost proposals are challenging proposal areas and very important to making sure that you don't go broke trying to complete an SBIR/STTR project. In this workshop, you will learn how to estimate your company's indirect/F&A rate, and how to justify your fee/profit request. Not sure you are going to ask for indirect/F&A reimbursement, or for fee/profit on your SBIR/STTR projects? Attend this workshop and get the answers to these questions and more!
