SBIR Grants

Congratulations, you’ve been awarded a government grant! Now what?

First Steps

You need to work on developing your business, its products, and mission, but you also need to be accountable to the grantor of your newfound finances. (The U.S. government can be such sticklers!) At Fine Point, we understand the SBIR/STTR awardee; their needs, and the requirements they face. We focus on helping the Phase I grant winner maximize their ability to win a Phase II grant and then help the Phase 11 grant winner by performing the strenuous tasks of maintaining a DCAA compliant accounting systems, invoicing, and properly managing day-to-day expenditures and labor hours.


Fine Point Consulting was instrumental in helping us…


Fine Point Consulting will:

  • Prepare the budget for grant submission, including the calculation of indirect rate pools
  • Help you pass your DCAA audit with the proper accounting system setup and documented internal controls and written procedures
  • Keep track of grant labor hours and other expenses over the life of the grant
  • Prepare and submit invoices to the government agency

Competitive Opportunities for Small Business Owners

The SBIR program is targeted at entrepreneurs because that’s the sector where most innovation originates. However, the expense and risk of high-level R&D efforts are often beyond the small business owner’s means. SBIR protects small companies and encourages them to compete on even footing with larger businesses. For more information on our grant administration services, call or visit the information page.
