  • About SEWP
    • The NASA SEWP (Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement) GWAC (Government-Wide Acquisition Contract) provides the latest in Information Technology (IT) products and services for all Federal Agencies and their approved contractors.

  • Fair Opportunity
    • SEWP V is composed of 202 Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts to 148 prime contract holders, both manufacturers and resellers of IT equipment. The contracts were awarded in five contract Groups – two full and open and three set-aside competitions. Since all awards were multi-award contracts, Fair Opportunity (refer to FAR 16.505(b)) must be given to all contractors in one or more Groups. The following steps may assist customers in determining which contract best fulfills their requirements:
      • Market Research:According to Federal Acquisition Regulations, (FAR) Part 10, appropriate market research based on the size and complexity of the acquisition is required. The Online Quick RFI Tool and Quote Request Tool (QRT) SEWP tools assist in this market research process.
      • Fair Opportunity:FAR 16.505(b)(1) provides that each contractor shall be given fair opportunity to be considered for each order exceeding $3,000 and issued under multiple award contracts. The FAR states that the method to obtain fair opportunity is at the discretion of the CO and that the CO must document the rationale for placement and price of each order. NOTE: Fair Opportunity to all Contract Holders within one or more SEWP Groups is required. There is no requirement to obtain three quotes if all Contract Holders within a Group were provided opportunity to provide a quote. The online QRT is the recommended method to assist the CO and augment the required decision documentation. The QRT automatically includes the Contract Holders within a selected Group or based on a suggested source.
      • Best Value:Once market research is completed, the end-user’s needs, technical requirements, Contract Holder program performance, price, Agency policy and other factors related to the exercise of sound business judgment should be considered in making a best value determination.
    • Surcharge:
      • As of October 1, 2020, the SEWP surcharge for all orders is a 0.34%. The fee is included in the price of all products and is not separately listed on quotes. It is the Contract Holder’s responsibility to pay the fee from their quoted product prices.
    • How to obtain a quote for hardware, software, or services:
      • The official SEWP Quote Request Tool is the best way to request quotes using the SEWP contract.
