Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) falls under pre-commercial procurement. It enables public bodies to purchase research to stimulate innovation, when goods or services are currently not available in the marketplace. SBIR helps the public sector to address identified ‘Challenges’ that impact the citizen. On the supplier side SBIR is particularly suited to small and medium-sized business, as contracts are of relatively low value and operate in short timescales
