Which CSR Study Section Should I Request to Review My NIH SBIR/STTR Proposal?
The Center for Scientific Review (CSR) is the portal for NIH grant applications and their initial review for scientific merit. CSR organizes the peer review groups that evaluate the majority of these applications. Recurring Special Emphasis Panels (SEPs) review SBIR/STTR applications, and the reviewers generally make a three-year commitment to be available for a Study Section. Accordingly, a panel in one cycle generally contains quite a few members from the previous cycle. A listing of the Study Sections for the previous three SBIR review cycles is available on CSR’s website.
So how do you determine which Study Section is the best for you? Get started by looking at the Study Section(s) roster and finding the one that seems most appropriate for your technology. Although the make-up of your panel will not be identical, there will be some overlap.
You will want to research the backgrounds and publications of the previous members and their affiliate organizations to provide some perspective on their expertise and how they might view your proposal. Read on
Fraud, Waste and Abuse – Small Problem, Big Consequences

Over the past few years, there has been heightened attention on the topic of Fraud, Waste and Abuse in the SBIR and STTR programs. We last wrote about it in 2012 and thought a review might be helpful. Although the incidence of this type of activity is low – estimated to occur in less than 0.1% of SBIR awards – agencies are nonetheless required to have a strong focus in the area and provide the means for reporting such activity through telephone hotlines and web-based methods.
What constitutes waste, fraud and abuse? The Dept. of Energy’s website has a concise description of the typical types of fraud in the SBIR/STTR program, both during the application process within the proposal itself and following award. Here are some of the key points:

Fraud during the application process:
  • Submitting a plagiarized proposal
  • Providing false information regarding the company, the Principal Investigator or the work to be performed
  • Seeking funding for work that has already been completed
Fraud during the award:
  • Using award funds for any use other than the proposed activities
  • Submitting plagiarized reports or reports falsely claiming work has been completed
  • Claiming results for an award that were funded by a different source
Here are some ways to avoid potential issues related to fraud:
  • Disclose duplicate/overlapping proposals.
  • If submitting multiple proposals, clearly state what is different.
  • Makes sure you understand, meet and remain compliant with the SBIR eligibility requirements for small businesses
  • Follow the project budget as awarded. Notify the agency, and request approval where appropriate, if changes are needed.
Per the SBA policy directive: failure to comply with federal cost principles governing an award is considered Waste, Fraud and Abuse.
  • “But for the certifications you would not have gotten the award” (translation: be sure you understand and comply with all of the rules!)
Best advice: Do as your mother told you, read and follow instructions and always tell the truth.

Ford College Community Challenge Grant 2017 due April 26, 2017

Please share this opportunity with faculty and staff in your unit as you see relevant.

Ford Motor Company Fund is requesting proposals for an innovative grant-making initiative: The Ford College Community Challenge. This program is designed to empower student-led projects at higher education organizations to catalyze community-building projects that address pressing local needs.

The overarching theme of the Ford College Community Challenge is “Making Lives Better” by:

  • Changing the Way People Move Through Smart Mobility
  • Driving Social Mobility
  • Building Sustainable Communities

“At Ford, we understand that to be a truly sustainable organization, we must play an active role in the larger community, helping address a wide range of vital issues from education to safety to mobility.”

Winning proposals must address, in some creative way, a tangible, unmet community need that addresses the issue of Making Lives Better. Participants are urged to think broadly and explore a variety of potential topics including infrastructure and workforce needs, education pipeline issues, design issues, new approaches to student volunteerism, etc.

Up to 10 winning proposals will be selected to receive $25,000 each from Ford Motor Company Fund to support implementation of the proposed projects. Winning proposals must, at a minimum:

  1. Describe an innovative approach to Making Lives Better
  2. Involve students in a leadership role
  3. Seek to address an urgent and unmet community need in a tangible way
  4. Involve a community-based organization as a partner
  5. Involve the school of business, engineering, or design in some way

Faculty and staff who would like to submit a proposal should contact Pete Cattelino, Office of Industry Relations (pjcattel@mtu.edu, 487-3486), to obtain a full RFP and further information.  Please provide a 1 or 2 sentence overview of you proposal idea.

  • Submission deadline of Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
  • Twenty proposals from the 1st round will be selected in early June 2017 to advance to the 2nd round of the competition. These proposals will be asked to provide an additional “elevator speech” description of their projects, delivered via video.
  • Award winners will be announced and projects implemented in fall 2017.
