I am a team member of an NSF SBIR project(Phase II). We have gone through a due diligence, got an award recommendation, and then finished the CAP financial/administrative review.
Still, we’re waiting for the decision.
An award recommendation from our program director has been handed over to the division, and it’s been 3 months.
Is this a bad sign? I’d like to know if it’s common to get a rejection of the award even at this last stage.
