The Navy has awarded indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts to 340 contractors that will compete for a variety of command task orders that collectively could be worth $5.3 billion a year.
The contracts stem from the SeaPort Enhanced Rolling Admissions solicitation and have a one-year base period with one five-year award term and one additional four-year award term. They are in addition to the 1,265 contracts previously awarded under the SeaPort-e acquisition program.
Functional service procurements will be solicited by Naval Sea Systems, Naval Air Systems, Space and Naval Warfare Systems, Naval Supply Systems, Military Sealift, and Naval Facilities Engineering commands; Strategic Systems Programs; Office of Naval Research; Defense Threat Reduction Agency; and Marine Corps.
The Naval Sea Systems Command, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, Dahlgren, Va., is the contracting activity.
The 22 functional service areas include Research and Development Support; Engineering System Engineering and Process Engineering Support; Modeling, Simulation, Stimulation and Analysis Support; Information System Development, Information Assurance and Information Technology Support; and Software Engineering, Development, Programming and Network Support.
SeaPort-e covers seven regional zones in which task orders will be competed based on the principal place of performance. Each contractor will be afforded a fair opportunity to compete for individual task orders solicited within its zone or zones of performance, the Navy said.
These awards also contain set-aside provisions for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, 8a business development program and Historically Underutilized Business Zone small businesses.
