U.S. Small Business Administration.


Notice of proposed policy directive; Notice of reopening of the comment period.


The proposed rule proposes revisions to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Policy Directive. The revised proposed policy directive reflects recently enacted statutory requirements. It is proposed to provide guidance to participating Federal agencies for the general conduct of the SBIR Program. The notice of proposed policy directive was published on May 18, 2001, 66 FR 27721. The comment period closed on June 18, 2001. We are reopening the comment period because the Small Business Administration believes that affected businesses need more time to adequately respond.


The comment period for the proposed policy directive published on May 18, 2001 (66 FR 27721) is reopened through July 23, 2001.
