Direct Electron is a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I and Phase II grant recipient (Grant R44GM103417 administered through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), and grant R44RR024964 administered through the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR)).

As an SBIR recipient, Direct Electron is authorized to be a sole source provider for entities associated with the US government (including national laboratories). This means you can work with us directly without having to go through a long and tedious bid process.

Since Direct Electron has been awarded an SBIR, we have satisfied the competition requirements and so for purpose of securing a contract with the government for selling your services and products, we can do so directly without going through a bidding process (GSA, MOBIS, or posting on FedBizOpps is not needed).

Specifically, according to the SBIR Omnibus FOA: “The competition for SBIR Phase I and Phase II awards satisfies the competition requirement of the Armed Services Procurement Act, the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act, and the Competition in Contracting Act. Therefore, an agency that wishes to fund an SBIR Phase III project is not required to conduct another competition in order to satisfy those statutory provisions. As a result, in conducting actions relative to a Phase III SBIR award, it is sufficient to state for purposes of a Justification and Approval pursuant to FAR 6.302-5 that the project is a SBIR Phase III award that is derived from, extends, or logically concludes efforts performed under prior SBIR funding agreements and is authorized under 10 U.S.C. 2304(b)(2) or 41 U.S.C. 253(b)(2).”
