In its announcement, the Navy said that $5.3 billion worth of services are acquired through SeaPort-e each year. The new companies were added through the contract’s rolling admissions process.
SeaPort-e contains seven regional zones and task orders will be competed by zone based on the principal place of performance for the contract. The contract has a two-year base period with one five-year award term.
There are provisions in the contract for set aside requirements for small businesses, service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses, 8a businesses and historically under-utilized business zone small businesses.
The Navy received 415 bids for this round SeaPort-e contracts; they made 385 awards.
