The U.S. Navy triggered the start of rolling admissions Jan. 11 for new companies seeking a slot on its 10-year, $50 billion, SeaPort Next Generation (SeaPort NxG) professional services contract. The rolling admission process will allow new companies to submit bids by Feb. 12 to compete for task orders among the existing 1,870 companies awarded contracts in Dec. 2018.
The Navy and Marine Corps provide primary funding on this contract, but it is open to other government agencies. Contract requirements consist of engineering and program management services and “span the entire spectrum of mission areas and technical capabilities,” according to the request for proposal.
In fiscal 2020, SeaPort-e spending obligations total $5.1 billion and SeaPort NxG spending obligations total $1 billion. Bloomberg Government forecasts that spending trend to accelerate in fiscal 2021, as awards transition from SeaPort-e to SeaPort NxG in coming years.
Since fiscal 2016 the top companies involved include: Science Applications International Corp. ($1.9 billion), Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. $1.8 billion), and General Dynamics Corp. ($1.2 billion).
Companies interested in Seaport NxG should join Bloomberg Government for a webinar Jan. 21, where analysts will discuss upcoming SeaPort NxG bids, future spending, and opportunities expected to flow from Seaport-e. To register for the webinar click here.
