NineFX is subcontracted to Technique Solutions in support of SeaPort-e®. SeaPort-e is the Navy’s electronic platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas including Engineering, Financial Management, and Program Management. The Navy Systems Commands (NAVSEA, NAVAIR, SPAWAR, NAVFAC, and NAVSUP), the Office of Naval Research, Military Sealift Command, and the United States Marine Corps compete their service requirements amongst 2400+ SeaPort-e IDIQ multiple award contract holders. The SeaPort-e portal provides a standardized, efficient means of soliciting offers from amongst the diverse population of large and small businesses and their approved team members. All task orders are competitively solicited, awarded and managed using the SeaPort-e platform.
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:
- the award of multiple award contracts (MAC) with innovative contracting provisions
- the launch of a web based commercial e-procurement portal solution
- 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.
