** News Flash ** Updated 5/7/19
The SBIR.GOV website now has the DoD's 19.2 and 19.B SBIR/STTR topics so you can browse and search them. Go to https://www.sbir.gov/solicitation-listing/open This is a big help to try and offset the DoD's failure.
The DoD's delayed 19.2 SBIR and 19.B STTR BAAs were issued May 2, 2019 (sort of). The prerelease of these BAAs are available on FedBizOpps at:


The dates for these BAAs are:
May 02, 2019: DoD BAA issued for pre-release
May 31, 2019: DoD begins accepting proposals
July 01, 2019: Deadline for receipt of proposals no later than 8:00 p.m. ET

The usual DoD sites of www.acq.osd.mil/osbp/sbir and sbir.defensebusiness.org/ do not have the BAAs on their sites, but they link to the FedBizOpps announcement. The net effect is that there is currently no Topic Search available or easy way to browse the topics. FedBizOpps makes the files available in .ZIP format with all the component PDF files enclosed. It's not a convenient mechanism for those who want to browse for opportunities within their capabilities.

The sbir.defensebusiness.org site which usually has the search and browse capabilities do not have it for this BAA. They stated "operational issues" will keep it from having the BAAs until May 31, and we suspect the "topic search" and browse will also be missing until the end of the month. If the topic search stays missing from the DoD (and sbir.gov), we will resurrect our Zyn "Mr. Rogers" (get you into the neighborhood) search next week. It will be available here on SBIR.tv .

The Navy does have a 19.2 and 19.B topic search and browse for Navy topics on their site at navysbir.com

It is still planned that the sbir.defensebusiness.org site will be where you submit your proposal. Questions about the BAAs can be directed to the DoD's SBIR help desk at 800-348-0787 or email sbirhelpdesk@u.group
