SEAPORT NEXT GENERATION (SeaPort-NxG) NAVAL CONTRACT VEHICLE
SeaPort Next Generation or SeaPort-NxG is the U.S. Navy’s contract vehicle of choice to procure all future engineering, technical, logistics, program management and financial support services. The SeaPort-NxG 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-NxG platform.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The SeaPort-NxG marketplace provides end-to-end government to contractor support for the procurement of services from the definition of requirements to contract close-out in a completely paperless and secure environment. The portal is web-based allowing requirements to be defined and proposals to be solicited, submitted, and evaluated from any location. The Task Order Request for Proposal (TO RFP) is published for competition to prime contractors qualified in the functional area that the work is to be performed. Legally binding digital signatures, which have been defined by the electronic processes, are used to execute task orders. Finally, solicitations, task orders and other contract documents are captured in an electronic resource library to provide models for future procurements.
In general, customers identify in what area the work is to be performed, create their standard solicitation package and upload through the SeaPort-NxG portal. Through the portal, the TO RFP is published for competition to those prime contractors qualified in the functional area where the work is to be performed. Prime contractors, qualified in that area, submit their proposals through the SeaPort-NxG portal for evaluation. The Customer evaluates the proposals, and makes an award. SeaPort-NxG has effectively streamlined the acquisition process, with a typical task order being awarded in less that 4 months from RFP release.
