What Is SEWP?
NASA’s Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) is a contract that offers IT products and services to Federal, state, and local government agencies. SEWP provides federal buyers with access to IT contractors that have already negotiated with the government organization, allowing for a more streamlined acquisition process.
SEWP has become one of the most popular contracting vehicles for IT products and services in the Federal Government. There are many reasons why SEWP is such a widely adopted contracting vehicle for government agencies. One reason is that SEWP offers a wide variety of IT products and services from over 5,000 authorized vendors. This gives government agencies substantial flexibility when it comes to procuring the IT products and services they need.
Another reason why SEWP is so popular is that it offers a streamlined acquisition process that makes it easy for agencies to procure the IT products and services they need quickly and efficiently. The SEWP acquisition process includes four steps:
- Step 1: Find what you need: Use the SEWP Contract Catalog to find pre-competed IT products and services from authorized vendors.
- Step 2: Get pricing: Request quotes from authorized vendors through the eBuy system.
- Step 3: Make a purchase: Use the SEWP Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to quickly and easily make a purchase.
- Step 4: Receive your product/service: Receive your IT product or service from an authorized SEWP vendor.
SEWP is an invaluable resource for government agencies looking to procure IT products and services promptly and efficiently. With its wide variety of authorized vendors and streamlined acquisition process, SEWP makes it easy for agencies to find the right solution for your needs without going through a lengthy procurement process.
