MLS is pleased to announce that we have won a spot on the SeaPort-NxG vehicle.
SeaPort-NxG is both the electronic module within the SeaPort Portal as well as the set of Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Contracts (MACs) that is available for use in conducting competitive procurements among its vendor participants. The U.S. Navy has awarded 600 companies spots on the SeaPort Next Generation contract vehicle for engineering and program management support services. The move marks the expansion of the current pool of vendors competing for task orders across 23 functional areas as part of a rolling admissions process launched in January for the SeaPort-NxG indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
In response to Task Orders issued under this contract by the Naval Sea Systems Command, Naval Information Warfare Systems Command, Naval Supply Systems Command, Military Sealift Command, Naval Facilities Systems Command, Office of Naval Research, Naval Air Systems Command, Strategic Systems Programs, or the United States Marine Corps, MLS will provide services that potentially span the entire spectrum of mission areas and technical capabilities supported by the Department of the Navy (DON) ordering activities. Services within the two categories and twenty-three functional area subcategories may be performed under this contract for new and existing product areas, programs, or missions, which are assigned to these activities during the life of the contract.
The engineering services category covers 12 functional areas, including engineering, system engineering and safety and process engineering support; research and development; and software engineering, development, programming and network support, according to the final request for proposals. The program management category encompasses 11 functional areas, including financial analysis and budget support; quality assurance; and computer systems analysts.
The government estimates the Navy will procure $5 billion worth of services annually through task orders issued under SeaPort-NxG. Each multiple-award contract has a base period of two and a half years and an ordering period option of five years. The Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division in Virginia is the contracting activity and received 620 offers through a competitive solicitation for the rolling admissions.
