Benchmarking Materials Requirements

When you apply for the benchmarking program, you will submit preferred dates for your site visit. You also must complete three steps to help your team gain a comprehensive understanding of your incubation program and the challenges you face:

STEP 1. Complete the TVA/ARC/NBIA Online Benchmarking Tool.

STEP 2. Answer 20 general questions about your program. Most require only check-off answers; in some cases, you will need to write just a sentence or two.

STEP 3. Provide documents related to your program. You should already have this information readily available.

All required materials are due no later than four weeks before your review date. Submissions can be uploaded electronically via this Web site.

Don't have a type of information requested? Don't worry about it. But please do provide all the documents, lists or other information you can to ensure a thorough assessment of your program.

If you don't have all the information at hand, you may stop the process at any point, save your submissions and begin again at a more convenient time.

To ensure confidentiality, the information you provide will be shared only with the project coordinator and members of your team.
