NASA has awarded 118 contracts to small, disadvantaged businesses under Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP V), a multi-award Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) vehicle focused on information technology products and product-based services.
Of these SEWP V contracts, 14 were awarded to businesses operating in historically underutilized business zones, 25 contracts were awarded to business owned by service-disabled veterans, and 79 contracts were awarded to other small businesses for server support devices and/or multi-functional devices.
The contracts are firm-fixed-price, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, with a $25 minimum per order of supplies or services, and a per contract maximum of $20 billion. Each contract will have an effective ordering period of 10 years, consisting of a five-year base period from May 1, to April 30, 2020, and one five-year option to extend the period of performance through April 30, 2025.
SEWP V contracts streamline the process of providing federal agencies with state-of-the-art tablets, desktops and servers; IT peripherals; network equipment; storage systems; security tools; software products; cloud-based services; video conferencing systems, and other IT and audio-visual products; as well as related services such as installation, training and maintenance. All federal agencies and their contractors can place orders through this GWAC. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, procures and manages the SEWP V effort.
