Tech assessment

Our initial meeting will ensure that you and JHEverson Consulting have a mutual understanding of your interests in a solicitation topic in relation to its technology and business concerns and the intent and scope of the solicitation topic.

A technology assessment involves proposal preparation that addresses the soundness of approach, technical merit, and state-of-the-art awareness. Searches of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) databases determine whether your proposed innovation is similar to topics from current or past solicitations. The search should be expanded to include research and development firms, universities, government laboratories, and working groups to compare your technical approach with others’.
