This contract is the next iteration of the services contracting vehicle SeaPort-e, according to the Navy and is expected to award approximately $5 Billion in awards annually.

The services included in SeaPort Next Generation are broadly categorized into engineering services and program management services. Within these categories there are 23 functional service areas that include:

Engineering Services
1. Engineering, System Engineering, and Safety and Process Engineering Support
2. Software Engineering, Development, Programming, and Network Support
3. In-Service Engineering, Fleet Introduction, Installation and Checkout and Provisioning Support
4. Measurement Facilities, Range, and Instrumentation Support
5. Interoperability, Test and Evaluation, Trials Support
6. Research and Development Support
7. Modeling, Simulation, Stimulation, and Analysis Support

11. Inactivation and Disposal Support
12. Biochemical Engineering Support

Program Management Services

7. Public Affairs and Multimedia Support
8. Logistics Support
9. Configuration Management (CM) Support
10. Information System (IS) Development, Information Assurance (IA), and Information Technology (IT) Support
11. Computer Systems Analysts

These work categories span across the Navy’s major commands and agencies, with the exception of Naval Air Systems Command, which has pursued its own services contracting vehicle. One of the major changes in the requirements for award on this contract vehicle was past performance in direct support of the Navy.

The Building People have a strong relationship with the Navy providing many of the services included in the SeaPort Next Generation contract. The Building People’s President and CEO, Lawrence Melton,  said, “Utilizing this new contract vehicle, enables us to expand on our already great relationship with the Navy where our team provides our world class services.”

The Navy will begin using SeaPort-NxG MACs to award task orders for services at the beginning of fiscal year 2019.
