NDAA Section

House Conference Report 110-477

SEC. 1076. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION RESEARCH PROGRAM.

    It is the sense of Congress that--

      (1) the Department of Defense's Small Business Innovation Research program has been effective in supporting the performance of the missions of the Department of Defense, by stimulating technological innovation through investments in small business research activities;

      (2) the Department of Defense's Small Business Innovation Research program has transitioned a number of technologies and systems into operational use by warfighters; and

      (3) the Department of Defense's Small Business Innovation Research program should be reauthorized so as to ensure that the program's activities can continue seamlessly, efficiently, and effectively.

Sense of Congress on Small Business Innovation Research program (sec. 1076)

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 1088) that would reauthorize the Small Business Innovation Research program for an additional 2 years.

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes with an amendment that would eliminate the reauthorization of the program, and include a sense of Congress expressing views on the value of the program to the Department of Defense and on the need to reauthorize the program to ensure its seamless execution.
