SBIR Webinar: Electronic Submission and Proposal Management (Parts 1 and 2: March 23 and 30, 2011)
Join us for a two-part SBIR webinar on electronic registration and proposal submission.
WTC is hosting this two-part SBIR webinar led by Catherine Henry, SBIR/STTR consultant and national conference speaker.
Part 1: Wednesday, March 23, 10-11 a.m. (Pacific Time)
Part 2: Wednesday, March 30, 10-11 a.m. (Pacific Time)
You don't want to put scores of hours into writing your SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) proposal, only to have the electronic submission system jeopardize your application effort. Learn the important administrative steps and the timelines involved in preparation to submit a grant or contract proposal into the various government systems. It is essential to avoid missing any key steps in the electronic submission process, and it also critical to understand how absolutely LITERAL and unforgiving the computerized submission processes can be...and best methods to protect yourself. This includes planning for federal registration in general as well as specific registration and submission tips for different agencies.
The presentation will also cover selected project-management tasks that keep a proposal effort on track and on task within the tight timeframe of a submission schedule. Careful project management goes hand in hand with proposal submission, as it is important to have ALL of the required items ready to submit when the time comes. Learn to avoid the common pitfalls of registration and proposal submission, and learn what to do when things don't go smoothly and the computer-generated error messages start showing up in your e-mail. Master this sometimes nerve-wracking business, by learning the basics of how to submit grant or contract proposals on time and within the solicitation requirements in a way that reduces the stress and strain.
