NASA launches $20B SEWP V contract

Depending on how you look at it the countdown has either ended or is about to begin for NASA’s $20 billion SEWP V contract.

The space agency has released the request for proposals for the fifth iteration of the Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement, which NASA first started in 1993 to deliver a wide range of products and related services to government agencies.

The deadline for proposals is Oct. 14 and NASA said it will award contracts with a five-year base and one five-year option, which will take the contract out to 2024.

Awards will come in four groups. One group is in Category A for computer-based sysems, which will be a full-and-open competition.

There are three groups under Category B:

  • Group B for mass storage devices, which will be reserved for service-disabled, veteran owned small businesses and historically underutilized small businesses, also known as HUBzone businesses.
  • Group C is for server support devices/multi-functional devices and is reserved for small businesses.
  • Group D is for networking/security/video and conference tools and will be a full-and-open competition.

The current SEWP contract is held by some 50 companies and has had $10.3 billion in task orders run through it since it got started in 2006. By 2007, it had over $500 million in task orders. It broke the $1 billion in annual task order in 2008 and has averaged about $2 billion a year since 2010, according to the market research firm Deltek.

The top five companies are:

  • World Wide Technology with $991.3 million in task orders
  • CDW-G with $650.9 million
  • GTSI with $585.7 million
  • Sword & Shield Computer Services with $551.8 million
  • ImmixGroup with $536.5 million
