SEWP Delivery Orders must be routed to the NASA SEWP Program Office in the following ways:
Do not forward orders directly to a Contract Holder. Contract Holders may only accept Delivery Orders through the NASA SEWP Program Office and the orders must have an assigned SEWP tracking number.
The SEWP QRT provides customers with the ability to efficiently create Request for Information / Request for Quotes (RFI/RFQ), as part of a suite of tools available on the SEWP website to assist customers with buying decisions and as one means to provide documentation for any needed selection criteria.
The SEWP Program Office manages a suite of government-wide IT products and services contracts that enable NASA and all Federal Agencies to achieve their missions and strategic initiatives by providing streamlined access to critical technologies and solutions. The Program provides best value for the Federal Government and American taxpayer through innovative procurement processes, premier customer service and outreach, acquisition insight, and partnership with Government entities and Industry. SEWP V contracts are firm fixed price contracts that offer a wide variety of IT products and product based services, including:
The SEWP contracts are for use by NASA, all Federal agencies and approved federal agency support service contractors. Contracting officers considering authorizing support service contractors should review the policy at FAR 51.101, and any agency specific guidance or policy, to make the appropriate determination and written finding which supports issuance of the authorization, as required by FAR 51.102 and FAR 51.107. (For NASA contracting officers, additional guidance is provided in the NASA Far Supplement at Subpart 1851.) Approved support service contractors must comply with the requirements at FAR 51.103.
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.
Fair Opportunity: FAR 16.505(b) (1) provides that each contractor shall be given fair opportunity to be considered for each order exceeding $10,000 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. Using the SEWP online Quote Request Tool is the recommended method to assist in this activity and to augment the required decision documentation. The SEWP QRT tool will automatically include the Contract Holders within a selected Group or based on a suggested source.
NOTE: Fair Opportunity to all Contract Holders within one or more SEWP Groups is required. There is no requirement to obtain 3 quotes as long as all Contract Holders within a Group were provided opportunity to provide a quote.
