Welcome to the Web pages for EXB Solution’s (EXB’s) SeaPort-e contract (N00178-10-D-6039). EXB was awarded a SeaPort-e prime contract on July 15, 2010, from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD). EXB is approved to work in all 7 zones.
The purpose of these Web pages is to communicate with our potential customers regarding EXB’s ability to provide world-class professional support services for all Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Program Executive Offices, Directorates, and field activities.
Background from NAVSEA
In response to declining budgets, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and its Warfare Centers, which are responsible for the acquisition of all US Navy ship and shipboard systems, targeted a reduction in the cost of services for its headquarters, Directorates, Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and field activities. As the first major step towards achieving this goal, NAVSEA embarked on a business process re-engineering effort to maximize the efficiency and economy of support service procurement. This effort, collectively referred to as SeaPort, took a three pronged approach: 1) the award of multiple award contracts (MAC) with innovative contracting provisions, 2) the launch of a web based commercial e-procurement portal solution, and 3) the development of a web site (www.seaport.navy.mil) to serve as the entry point to the portal. These three efforts converged on 2 April 2001, when NAVSEA awarded the multiple contracts and launched the market place and the web site.
On 5 April 2004, a new set of MACs were awarded to 151 new MAC holders in a program called SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e). While used by all NAVSEA activities and HQ, SeaPort-e is particularly geared to satisfy the mission and requirements of the Surface and Undersea Warfare Centers. SeaPort-e uses the same successful business model of SeaPort, including the streamlined acquisition procedures, e-procurement portal, and innovative contracting provisions. In May of 2005, the SeaPort-e MACs were expanded to include over 600 prime contractors through the Virtual SYSCOM Rolling Admissions process.
NAVSEA MACs are designed to include all aspects of professional support services required by NAVSEA, its related Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and field affiliates. These contracts are not intended to nor will they be used to procure any personal services or services which are inherently governmental.
