The Federal Government's use of IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) type contracts has been increasing rapidly over the last 10 years. Many times these contracting vehicles are referred to as Multiple-Award Contracts (MAC). The Federal Government obligations under MAC awards have grown by over 5X from 2003 until this year. By far the largest of the IDIQ contract vehicles is the Navy's Seaport-e program. There are currently over 3,300 Seaport-e prime contract holders and obligated dollars in this program is over $5 Billion. The Navy has just announced (this week) that they will allow a "rolling admissions" to add to the contractor base for prime contractors in this vehicle. The solicitation is N00178-13-R-4000 and proposals will be due by May 1, 2013. Awards are expected to be given in October or early November of 2013.
