The primary Navy Contracting Officers (both Military and Civilian) are both online and physically located at various Navy homeport locations such as Norfolk, San Diego, and Pearl Harbor.
SeaPort NxG is the Navy's electronic platform for acquiring support services in 23 functional areas including Engineering, Financial Management, and Program Management. The Navy Systems Commands (NAVSEA, NAVAIR, NAVWAR, NAVFAC, and NAVSUP), the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Military Sealift Command (MSC), and the United States Marine Corps (USMC) compete their service requirements amongst 1800+ SeaPort NxG Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contract holders. Simply stated, SeaPort NxG provides an efficient and effective means of contracting for professional support services and enhancing small business participation.
