What is SEWP?

Small Business categories include: Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB); Woman-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB); HUBZone Small Businesses; Veteran- Owned Small Businesses (VOSB); and Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB).

2nd - NASA SEWP Program Management Office (PMO)

Processing Fees

Processing Fees: The SEWP surcharge for all orders is a 0.36%. 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. NASA SEWP reserves the right to adjust all surcharge rates as the SEWP Program Management Office (PMO) budget so requires. Note that the NASA SEWP Program Management Office (PMO) operates on a non-profit, self-contained Full Cost Accounting Budget. The fees are set solely to fund the services and staff provided by the NASA SEWP Program Management Office (PMO). Collection of excess fees will result in either an increase in services, a decrease in the fee structure or a combination of the two

Contract Effective Dates: All SEWP V Contracts, have an effective ordering period of May 1, 2015 through April 30, 2025. The base contracts were awarded for 5 years with one 5 year option for a total of 10 years. Each contract has a $20 Billion contract limit.

Economy Act

Delivery orders issued against the SEWP contracts are not subject to the Economy Act. FAR 17.500(b) states The Economy Act applies when more specific statutory authority does not exist. Examples of acquisitions to which the Economy Act does not apply (17.500(b)(2)include acquisitions using Government-wide acquisition contracts. The SEWP contracts are Government Wide Acquisition Contracts. The authority for the SEWP contracts is from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) , pursuant to Section 5112(e) of the Information Technology Management Reform Act (“Clinger-Cohen Act”), 40 U.S.C. 1412(e), which authorizes the Director of OMB to designate one or more heads of executive agencies as executive agents for government-wide acquisitions contracts for IT.

There is a requirement that all SEWP Delivery Orders be routed through the NASA SEWP Program Management Office (PMO) to insure all ordering information is complete, accurate and in scope with the applicable contract. However, NASA does not issue orders for other agencies under the SEWP contracts, and other Federal Agencies do not send funds to NASA. Each SEWP Delivery Order is funded and issued to the SEWP Prime Contractor by a Contracting Officer at the ordering Federal Agency.

Fair Opportunity and Requests for Quotes

Contractors will be provided fair opportunity at the individual order level as appropriate per FAR Part 16.505(b), including the SEWP RFQ tools. No documentation for the order selection is required to be submitted with the order. All such documentation is to be maintained by the issuing procurement office.

The Contractor shall not market, quote or otherwise offer for sale, under this contract, any products not listed in Attachment F, Pricing Exhibits as defined in the SEWP database of record until the said products are included in the SEWP database, and available to all Government end-users.

If the Government issues a Request For Information (RFI) as part of market research, the Contractor may provide items not yet listed on their SEWP contract as part of a market research quote if:

  1. All such items are clearly marked as not yet available on their SEWP contract;
  2. The contractor submits a technology refreshment request to add those products to their contract

If the Government issues a Request For Quote (RFQ) or a Market Research Request (MRR), the Contractor may only respond with items available on their Contract. If the Contractor has insufficient items on their contract to fully respond to the Formal RFQ, the Contractor must respond with a No Bid.

Unless the RFQ specifically allows for partial quotes, the Contractor must respond fully to all requirements specified in the RFQ.

When the Contractor markets, quotes or otherwise offers for sale a product under this contract, the price of each item shall be the no greater than the price in Attachment F, Pricing Exhibits as defined in the SEWP database of record at the time the quote is issued.

When submitting a quote to a Government end-user, the contractor must clearly state the length of time the quote is valid. The contractor shall honor any order submitted within the stated time period of a quote.

When responding to an RFQ or MRR issued from the NASA SEWP on-line quoting system, the Contractor must respond as outlined in Attachment D, Section D.1. On-line Quoting. As a result of the Small Business jobs act, the issuing Contracting Officer can set aside an order for small businesses as long as there are two or more with that designation.
