How NASA SEWP is driving innovation

March 28, 2017 Laura Criste

Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) is an innovative and cutting edge multi-award contract vehicle focused on delivering superior commercial IT products and product based services for the federal government. NASA SEWP was built from the ground-up with innovation in its DNA.

Bloomberg Government, in partnership with Dcode42, hosted a breakfast event to discuss the intersection of NASA’s SEWP and innovation.

Daniel Snyder, Bloomberg Government’s deputy director of government contracts research, presented an analysis of SEWP. He discussed spending by agency and contractor, both large and small, and compared SEWP with other Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts. Dan’s closing takeaway was that the majority of recompete opportunities will be this fiscal year.

SEWP’s deputy program manager Darlene Coen discussed the new initiatives in SEWP’s fifth iteration and how SEWP can help drive innovation. In the interview, she provided tips for how new companies can participate in the SEWP without a spot on the contract vehicle and how SEWP vendors can bring emerging technologies into the vehicle’s offerings.

The program wrapped up with presentations by six innovative technology companies that are graduating from Dcode42’s federal-focused accelerator. They showed how their expertise in big data and advanced analytics can apply to government work under the SEWP vehicle.
