What is SeaPort™?
“In response to declining budgets, 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: 1) the award of multiple award contracts (MAC) with innovative contracting provisions, 2) the launch of a web based commercial e-procurement portal solution, and 3) the development of a web site (www.seaport.navy.mil) to serve as the entry point to portal. These three efforts converged on 2 April 2001, when NAVSEA awarded the multiple contracts and launched the market place and the web site.
On 5 April 2004, a new set of MACs were awarded to 151 new MAC holders in a program called SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e). While available to the all NAVSEA activities, SeaPort-e is geared to satisfy the mission and requirements of the Surface and Undersea Warfare Centers. SeaPort-e uses the same successful business model of SeaPort, including the streamlined acquisition procedures, e-procurement portal, and innovate contracting provisions.”
