Octo Consulting announced Thursday that the federal IT modernization company has won a five-year multiple-award contract to provide engineering, programmatic and technical support services for the U.S. Navy’s SeaPort Next Generation program.

Under the contract, Octo will leverage their expertise in cybersecurity solutions, data analytics and leading-edge technologies to assist the U.S. Navy in achieving modernization and cybersecurity mission objectives, the company said.

“Since 2017, Octo has provided engineering, technical, and programmatic support services to the Navy including modernization of mission-enabling Navy applications and infrastructure,” said Mehul Sanghani, CEO of Octo.

SeaPort Next Generation (NxG) is the Navy's electronic platform for acquiring support services in 23 functional areas including system engineering, software development and program management.

General Manager of Octo’s Defense Business Unit, James Vant, commented, "The SeaPort NxG program plays a critical role in the Navy's ability to provide services fulfilling capability requirements across the entire spectrum of Navy mission areas and technical capabilities supported by the Navy’s ordering activities.”

Octo's previous work with the U.S. Navy includes providing IT modernization support and developing SeaPort applications to enhance the Naval Sea Systems Command's professional support services procurement portal.

Both Sanghani and Vant expressed that they are honored to continue supporting the nation’s warfighters and civilians through the company’s work with the U.S. Navy’s NxG program.
