If you are an established company with direct customers and commercial sales, and you have a product that could be useful for the warfighter, you may submit a Direct to Phase II proposal. If you receive a Phase I contract but are not selected for a Phase II contract, during the next solicitation, if modifications are made to the proposal based on feedback from contracting or award of additional matching funds, a company may be able to submit a Direct to Phase II proposal. A Phase II contract follows the award of a Phase I contract.
