How Does It Work?
The SeaPort-e marketplace provides end-to-end government to contractor support for the procurement of services from the definition of requirements to contract close-out in a completely paperless and secure environment. The portal is web-based allowing requirements to be defined and proposals to be solicited, submitted, and evaluated from any location. The TO RFP is published for competition to prime contractors qualified in the Zone that the work is to be performed. Legally binding digital signatures, which have been defined by the electronic processes, are used to execute task orders. Finally, solicitations, task orders and other contract documents are captured in an electronic resource library to provide models for future procurements.
In general, customers identify in what Zone the work is to be performed, create their standard solicitation package and upload through the SeaPort-e portal. Through the portal, the TO RFP is published for competition to those prime contractors qualified in the Zone where the work is to be performed. Prime contractors, qualified in that zone, submit their proposals through the SeaPort-e portal for evaluation. The Customer evaluates the proposals, and makes an award.
