In 2002, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) promulgated Sea Power 21 to provide a framework to align, organize and integrate the U.S. Navy to meet the wide variety of challenges that lie ahead. To meet Sea Power 21 objectives and to increase efficiency, the NAVSEA Warfare Centers established the Seaport Enhanced (Seaport-e) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle. This contract vehicle utilizes a web-based, e-business procurement portal, to facilitate performance-based service acquisition, leverage buying power, improve business intelligence and reduce cycle time. In October 2004, the Virtual SYSCOM Commanders formalized an agreement to expand the ordering community of Seaport-e to include all Virtual SYSCOM activities and to leverage the success of SeaPort-e in achieving the aforementioned objectives across the Virtual SYSCOM. Additionally, other Navy activities, including the Military Sealift Command, Strategic Systems Programs, and the United States Marine Corps have chosen to use SeaPort-e.
In February of 2008, The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, on behalf of the Naval Sea Systems Command and the Navy Virtual SYSCOM (partners NAVSUP, NAVAIR, SPAWAR and NAVFAC) and other Navy activities, conducted a rolling admission per the terms and conditions of the SeaPort Enhanced (Seaport-e) Multiple Award Contracts. The Government expressed a direct interest in increasing participation from the small business community, including Hubzone; Woman-Owned-Small-Business (WOSB); Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB); and 8(a) concerns. This rolling admission resulted in the award of an Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) prime contract to Lingual Information System Technologies, Inc. (LinguaLISTek). The NAICS code for this procurement was designated as 541330 and the revenue size standard for Small Business was $25 Million.
