Through these two competitive programs, the nation's small, high-tech, innovative businesses are a significant part of the federal government's research and development efforts. Eleven federal departments participate in the SBIR program; five departments participate in the STTR program awarding $2 billion to small high-tech businesses.

"There is no requirement that a PI spend at least 50% of his or her time on an SBIR project. What is required of the PI is that he or she be “primarily employed” by the small company during the conduct of the SBIR project. That means that the PI cannot work full time for any other employer."
