SPAWAR Promotes Newest Seaport Contract Vehicle at Industry Event

Officials from Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command spoke with over 300 private sector representatives during an industry day dedicated to Seaport Next Generation, the U.S. Navy's newest contract vehicle for program management and technical services. The event, hosted by the National Defense Industry Association, took place in San Diego, Calif., on March 20, the Navy said Tuesday.

Seaport NxG allows qualifying contractors to provide services for Navy components and the U.S. Marine Corps on an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity basis. The contract vehicle succeeds older iterations of the Seaport program. 

Pat Sullivan, executive director of SPAWAR, delivered the event's opening address. “Today we find ourselves in an era of  great power competition, and now more than ever, we are looking to industry to increase the speed in which we get advanced capabilities into the hands of our warfighters,” he said.

SPAWAR then administered a discussion between government officials regarding Seaport NxG's mechanics after the event.
