As prescribed in 1819.7302(b), Contracting officers shall insert the clause at 1852.219-81, Limitation on Subcontracting – SBIR Phase II Program, in all Phase II contracts awarded under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program established pursuant to Pub. L. 97-219 (the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982).
LIMITATION ON SUBCONTRACTING – SBIR PHASE II PROGRAM (OCT 2006)
The Contractor shall perform a minimum of one-half of the research and/or analytical effort (total contract price less profit) conducted under this contract. Any deviation from this requirement must be approved in advance and in writing by the Contracting Officer. Since the selection of R&D contractors is substantially based on the best scientific and technological sources, it is important that the Contractor not subcontract technical or scientific work without the Contracting Officer's advance approval.
