  • SBIR/STTR Funding Agreement Certification (PDF) Prospective SBIR/STTR awardees need to complete and submit this form so that NSF can determine whether they’re eligible for an award. NSF will use this certification to determine your compliance during the funding term.
  • Certificate of Current Cost or Pricing Data (Word doc) NSF will use this form to certify that your cost and pricing data are accurate and that you’re compliant throughout your funding term.
  • SBIR/STTR Phase I Report Cover Page (PDF) Your Phase I funding agreement notes when you need to complete this form, and you’ll be expected to complete it at the times listed in your funding agreement. Completing the form involves checking all of the boxes and having your authorized officer sign and date the certification each time NSF requests it.
