SeaPort-E Multiple Contracts Awarded

By Naval Sea Systems Command Public Affairs

WASHINGTON -- The Navy awarded 151 Multiple Award Contracts (MACs), April 5, under the electronic web-based portal SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e). The MACs are for support services for all phases of naval ship and shipboard weapon systems including Research & Development Support, Prototyping, Acquisition Logistics, Modeling, Test & Evaluation Trials, and Engineering Support for Warfare Centers, Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters, field activities, and affiliated Program Executive Offices (PEO).

"SeaPort-e reflects a tangible example of the transformation occurring in how our Navy is doing business in the 21st Century. Paperless, reduced administration, harnessing web technology... said Vice Adm. Phillip M. Balisle, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). “SeaPort-e is a common vehicle to contract more efficiently. It is a consummate win-win effort as it provides a good business process for the Navy while providing ready access for our industry partners."

The contracts were competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online (NECO), with 153 offers received and 151 contracts awarded.

The Government estimates a maximum of $1,300,000,000 of service per year. The awards have a five-year base period with two additional, five-year award terms. These contracts are under the SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) electronic procurement system.

SeaPort-e is the electronic, web-based portal where requests for services are managed from “Cradle to Grave”. SeaPort-e is an extension of the current SeaPort procurement vehicle used at NAVSEA. This “paper-less” system promotes time efficiency and a reduction in administrative costs. Competition on a task order basis results in cost savings in addition to the already capped fees and pass-through rates established on the SeaPort-e MACs.

Small businesses comprise 68 percent of the awards for SeaPort-e. The SeaPort-e MACs also contain a full small business set-aside and cascading small business set-aside clause in order to protect the small business vendor base for each Warfare Center.
