Navy's Seaport-e Rolling Admission Solicitation is out

Posted by Mike Anderson on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 @ 04:10 PM

The Navy has just released its latest solicitation for the Seaport-e contract vehicle. This open solicitation is part of what the Navy calls its Rolling Admissions program.  The Navy has a Rolling Admission to expand the contractor base in their Indefinite Delivery / Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) prime contracts.  This is also an opportunity for existing Seaport-e prime contract holders to expand the scope of their contract or expand the geographical scope that their contract covers. 

For those not familiar with the Seaport-e program, the navy issues these ID/IQ contracts to prime contractors that they potentially will do business with.  Then the prime contract holders bid on individual task orders to secure awards.  The task orders are all bid competitively among only the ID/IQ contract holders.  There is a significant bias towards awarding business to Small business.  The goal for the Seaport-e program is 33% of total obligated dollars awarded to small business and large business awards must subcontract at least 20% to small business.  The task orders are awarded in one of seven geographical zones.  The ID/IQ holder must specify which zones they are qualified to bid in when they secure the Seaport-e contract (before the task orders are issued).  These zones are:

 

Zone 1 Northeast
Zone 2 National Capital
Zone 3 Mid Atlantic
Zone 4 Gulf Coast
Zone 5 Midwest
Zone 6 Southwest
Zone 7 Northwest

 

The Rolling Admission solicitation, N0017813R400, is available on-line now.  There are some significant due dates associated with this and the clock is ticking.  For those that are interested, now is the time to get involved and begin a proposal.  Here is a quick guide to critical dates in this process:

May 2, 2013 Written questions due to Seaport office
May 17, 2013 Registration for applicants due on Seaport site
May 30, 2013 Complete proposals due in Seaport office
November 15, 2013 Estimated award date

At ReliAscent, we have experts that have done these proposals before and can guide the contractor through the process.  In addition, pricing is critical on this since you will be bound to these rates for the task orders.  A DCAA compliant accounting system is also a requirement.  These are all things not to be taken lightly and should be discussed now, during the proposal stage.  ReliAscent can help.  Call us today.
