Navy Seeks Bids for SeaPort Follow-on Contract Vehicle

The U.S. Navy has asked industry to submit proposals for a new contract that will replace the SeaPort-e vehicle for professional support services.

The Naval Sea Systems Command said Friday it will begin awarding task orders through the SeaPort Next Generation vehicle at the start of fiscal year 2019.

SeaPort-NxG will split the 23 areas of work into two categories: engineering services and program management, according to the request for proposals.

The engineering services category covers 12 functional areas, including systems engineering, safety and process engineering; software development, engineering, programming and network support; research and development; system design documentation and technical data support; and biochemical engineering support.

The program management category includes 11 functional areas such as financial analysis and budget support; quality assurance; computer systems analysts; configuration management; database administrators; information systems development and information technology support; and logistics support.

NAVSEA said potential vendors should have experience in supporting the service branch in one of those functional areas in the past 10 years and that it will not consider proposals from joint ventures.

Large companies that seek to subcontract must file a “small business subcontracting plan” and that businesses that owe federal taxes or are suspended are not eligible to bid.

NAVSEA plans to have an “on-ramp” process for ineligible vendors two years after the multiple-award contracts under the SeaPort-NxG vehicle are issued in fiscal 2019.

Proposals are due July 2, according to a solicitation notice posted Friday on FedBizOpps.
