Task Order 4: Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs support services, including the following:

  • Atlas Group was successful in suggesting and working with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to establish a change control board (CCB) for all major changes to the data/IT support systems maintained by the SBA for SBIR/STTR Programs across the Federal Government. The DoD OSBP has had ongoing issues in this area for years, so it is noted that Atlas Group’s pro-active push to remedy the issue will help the program facilitate massive data exchange between DoD and SBA for SBIR award data. This is a very important breakthrough, and will save Federal Government Agencies (and their IT contractor staff) hundreds of hours each year (and hundreds of thousands of dollars) in terms of discovering and manually overriding errors created when Federal agencies and SBA have an exchange of information. 
  • Atlas Group successfully planned and executed the DoD OSBP Training Conference in June 2014 that was attended by more than 300 people in Alexandria, VA.
