Small Business Research Programs: Most Agencies Met Spending Requirements, but DoD and EPA Need to Improve Data Reporting
Federal agencies fund research and development projects at small businesses with the goal of helping them develop and commercialize innovative technologies. The two small business R and D programs we looked at require participating agencies to spend a certain percentage of their external research funding on the programs. Most agencies' spending data showed that they met these requirements. However, we couldn't determine if the Department of Defense or the Environmental Protection Agency met the requirements because they did not collect or submit the data. We recommended that DOD and EPA establish procedures to collect and submit their data.
