Abstract : On July 22, 1982 the President signed the 'Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982' (Public Law 97-219). This law is designed to give small high technology firms a greater share of the Federal R and D contract awards. The Act mandates that all Federal Agencies establish an SBIR program if their fiscal year extramural budget for R and D exceed of $100 million. Beginning in FY 1983, DoD began its SBIR Program by setting aside a percentage of its extramural R and D budget for this program. The percentage, set by Congress, began at .1 percent, and has increased over the years to the funding level of 1. 25 percent for FY92. The 'Small Business Research and Development Enhancement Act of 1992' (P.L. 102-564), signed October 28, 1992, extends the SBIR program through the fiscal year 2000 and expands the funding level beginning in FY93.
