The Seaport Enhanced (SeaPort-e) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle is the Navy’s electronic acquisition platform for support services in 22 Functional Task Areas including Configuration Management, Software Programming, Information Technology support, and Program Management. SeaPort-e utilizes a web-based procurement portal to facilitate its performance-based service acquisitions to ensure efficiency, quality, and reduce cycle time. All task orders are competitively solicited, awarded and managed using the SeaPort-e platform. It was established by the NAVSEA Warfare Centers to increase efficiency and meet the objectives of Sea Power 21, a U.S. Navy transformation initiative created in 2002 by the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), Admiral Vernon E. Clark. In 2004, the Virtual SYSCOM Commanders expanded the ordering community of Seaport-e to incorporate all Virtual SYSCOM activities. Currently, the Navy Systems Commands, the Office of Naval Research, Military Sealift Command, and the United States Marine Corps compete their service requirements among the 2400+ SeaPort-e IDIQ multiple award contract holders.
