The Naval Sea Systems
Command (NAVSEA) and its Warfare Centers, which are responsible
for the acquisition of all US Navy ship and shipboard systems,
targeted a reduction in the cost of services for its headquarters
Directorates, Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and field activities.
As the first major step towards achieving this goal, NAVSEA
embarked on a business process re-engineering effort to maximize
the efficiency and economy of support service procurement. This
effort, collectively referred to as SeaPort, took a three pronged
approach; the award of multiple
award contracts (MAC) with innovative contracting provisions,
the launch of a web based commercial e-procurement
portal solution, and the development of www.seaport.navy.mil
to serve as the entry point to the portal.
Under SeaPort and SeaPort-e, NAVSEA service
requirements can now be covered under these central vehicles
in which prequalified contractor teams compete for NAVSEA work.
This new structure represents a partnership between NAVSEA and
industry to provide services while demonstrating savings. These
two sets of indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ),
MAC contracts provides for a NAVSEA wide, consistent procurement
process which allows NAVSEA to leverage quality control and
work requirements for its Directorates, PEOs, and field activities.
