Nasa SEWP V | Solutions to Enterprise-Wide Procurement:
We are a contract holder on NASA Solutions for Enterprise Wide Procurement (SEWP). A Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) which provides the latest in information technology products for all federal agencies. SEWP is divided into five groups of contracts. Group B competition is set-aside for Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses like Regan Technologies. The statutory authority usage of the SEWP Contracts by the entire Federal Government is NASA's designation as an Executive Agent by OMB based on the Information Technology Management Reform Act (ITMRA) of 1996, now the Clinger Cohen Act.
As an SDVOSB, Regan is authorized to provide dozens of services covered by federal government contracts. From systems analysis and consultation, to IT training—and much more!—we are uniquely qualified to assist with projects under U.S. government contracts.
SEWP consists of over 140 pre-competed Prime Contract Holders, including more that 110 small businesses. The SEWP contract offers a vast selection and wide range of advanced technology, including, desktops and servers; IT peripherals; network equipment; storage systems; security tools; software products; cloud based services; video conferencing systems and other IT and Audio-Visual products along with product based services such as installation and maintenance to all federal agencies.
Through SEWP, agencies can find an exact fit for their needs at the best overall value by searching the web and choosing the right solutions offered directly by leading hardware and software manufacturers and experienced government integrators.
NASA is currently on the 5th iteration of the SEWP contract. Awards for the current SEWP V contract were made in May of 2015, and the duration of the contract will run from May 1, 2015 to April 30, 2025.
SEWP is a multi-award contract with well over 100, meaning that many companies hold NASA SEWP contracts. As with all GWACs, SEWP operates according to FAR Part 16.505(b), which defines that unless an exception exists, fair opportunity must be provided to all the contract holders within a given contract group. The government buyer can only specify a vendor to guide the contracting office towards specific contract groups.
Purchasing Through SEWP:
The SEWP quote request tool provides an easy means for the buyer to submit RFQs, follow the FAR fair opportunity rules, and obtain quotes that have been verified to be accurate and contractually correct.
Buyers can request any product or service that is in-scope. If a company wants to respond to a buyers request and does not yet have the items on contract, they submit a request to the NASA SEWP Program Management Office to add the needed items. If approved by the NASA SEWP Program Management Office (PMO), the company can then respond to the quote request.
SEWP offers low prices (generally below GSA schedule prices), the lowest surcharge and the easiest and fastest ordering procedure using pre-competed contracts. 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.
Who Can Use SEWP?
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.
To authorize a contractor to purchase from the SEWP contracts, the authorizing contracting officer should send a copy of the authorization letter to the SEWP Program Management Office (PMO) containing all of the following information:
The letter should be sent in advance of or with the first
order via fax, e-mail or Ground Mail.

The SEWP Program Management Office provides detailed utilization reporting to government CIOs which is a tremendous benefit in helping them meet the requirements of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA).
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.
Using SEWP Contracts:
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 5 contract Groups – 2 full and open and 3 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 SEWP website provides the only SEWP recommended tools for manufacturer searches (Quick RFI Tool) and for Request for Information/Request for Quotes (RFI/RFQ) (Quote Request Tool). These tools are available to assist customers with buying decisions and as one means to provide documentation for any needed selection criteria.
