OPEN Presentation Public Release Approval

IMPORTANT: ALL OPEN Presentations require approval for public release. AND, it is never too early to get public release approval. Some years approval has taken 8 weeks. The #1 reason that someone needs to cancel their presentation is because they have not obtained public release approval from their contract monitor.

For any presentation that will be given in an OPEN Session, PLEASE SEND a copy of your public release approval to ron.eng@nasa.gov or h.philip.stahl@nasa.gov

IF you are NOT a NASA SBIR Contractor, I will accept an email from your COTR.

IF You ARE a NASA SBIR Contractor, ALL you need to do is invoke your NPR 2200 Chapter 4 Section 4.5.10 Data Rights. All NASA SBIR contractors own their own IP and thus have the sole authority to determine whether or not to release publically.

NPR 2200, Chapter 4

4.5.10 "SBIR Data" Definition. "SBIR Data" is defined as data first produced by an SBIR contractor which are not generally known, have not, without obligation as to its confidentiality, been made available to others by the contractor, or are not already available to the Government. Data developed under an SBIR contract, if marked with the "SBIR Rights Notice" specified in the contract, must be withheld from public release in accordance with the SBIR contract, usually for 4 years. If such data are not marked with the "SBIR Rights Notice," the Government has no obligation to withhold the data from public release. Any questions regarding what constitutes "SBIR Rights Data," or regarding its marking, use, or dissemination, should be referred to the NASA Headquarters or Center Patent or Intellectual Property Counsel. To provide a commercialization incentive to SBIR contractors, it is NASA policy to restrict all SBIR program reports from public disclosure for the period specified in the contract for "SBIR Data" unless the contractor has granted permission to publicly release the report sooner. If a letter of permission from the contractor is on file, SBIR program reports may be made publicly available immediately. Notice of Availability Limitation. Restricted SBIR program documents must bear the "SBIR Rights Notice" shown in Exhibit 4-4 and one of the document distribution limitations listed in section 4.5.15, along with the appropriate expiration date. Copying and disseminating of such documents must be done in conformance with this notice. Any questions regarding appropriate markings or legends and applicable document distribution limitations should be referred to NASA Headquarters or the Center's Patent or Intellectual Property Counsel.
